Another brilliant TV series
6 September 2004 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

I just loved this series. Gary MacDonald at his best and supported by a wonderful cast.

Gary is left looking after his two children while his ex-wife is less than enthusiastic about sharing the burden. She is portrayed as a self-indulgent, insecure and irresponsible mother more interested in pursuing fleeting romances than her own children.

Gary portrays a man trying to make up for lost time, in the bedroom department, with the burden of two children.

Although this is a fairly common scenario in many broken families today it was not considered politically correct (and probably still is) thus only fifteen episodes. Women being portrayed as reckless and indifferent to their own children was not popular with the feminists.

Shame because the scripting is brilliant, the acting is good and it really is a laugh.
