This show could have been perfect. I loved the beginning whereby each of the family member's relation with the problematic idiot-protagonist is explored. Obviously I have no love for the main character but I would love to have his family. The mother: understanding but too indulgent, sister:supportive and protective, brother: barely tolerant but actually even more protective and comforting, father: bewildered and torn and grandmother: opinionated but brave.
The story should have been played out to its more realistic conclusion of eventual institutionalisation due to all the potentially tragic problems the lead created. Instead, it introduced another skeleton in the family's closet to take the story to a sweet conclusion. Too Hollywood an influence, methinks; or perhaps I'm just a sucker for bittersweet endings instead.
