A different kind of comedy
22 July 2003 | by (Manchester England) – See all my reviews

This is about a family and their every day lives. There's Jim the foul-mouthed lazy father who likes to save cash, Barbara- the dippy mother, Denise- the lazy daughter who tries to find her way out of looking after her son (only in the third series!) and Anthony- the teenage lad who gets treated like a skivvy by the rest of the family!! Of course there's Nana, Dave (Denise's husband). their next door neighbours- Joe, Mary and Cheryl (who is constantly trying to lose weight). Each series is full of rude jokes, witty lines and tons of everyday gossip in front of the television!!!

This is incredibly funny. Ricky Tomlinson has some classic lines- he is definetly the star of this show. It has some right witty lines in it without all that canned laughter spoiling the atmosphere.

Don't knock it til you watched it!!!
