Cute Show
28 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

I remember they used to show "No Place Like Home" on my local PBS station in the late 80's. It was a good show, an entertaining sitcom about somewhat disfunctional family. Martin Clunes as the son, and William Gaunt as the exhusted father, standout. Daniel Hill as the goofy son-in-law is very funny.

It's much better then anything British they play on PBS stations nowadays. To bad it's not on anymore~
