Good actors -- just a bad script!
18 July 2005 | by (Gibraltar) – See all my reviews

Get back was a BBC ½ hour sitcom that was a comedy based around a family having to come to terms with financial ruin due to high bank interest rates, a real estate crash and finally bankruptcy due to the bust of the late 1980's early 90's. Gone went the detached house with stables in Hertfordshire, the Porsche, holidays abroad and the kids public school education at Beniton.

After falling back down to earth with a thud,in came in a council flat in a depressed part of London that they had to share with their obnoxious granddad and an inner city school education for the girls. Just to rub salt into the wound and just to make series even funnier the older brother just managed to sell at the top of the market and consequently came through the property recession unscathed.

So, for laughs we had the elder brother sitting pretty coming out with insensitive and smart remarks towards his younger brother reminding him of his misfortune! As if he needed reminding because he was forced to become a door to door 'dog food' sales man just to support his family.

After, three or four weeks the joke wore thin and the series really had no direction and was eventually shelved. Most of the cast i.e. Larry Lamb, Ray Winstone and Kate Winslett all went on to better things
