Silly but fun., 4 March 2001
Author: podiwa (podiwa@hotmail.com) from Brisbane, Australia

It's not often you see a sitcom from Asia, usually they're American or English. However, Under One Roof turns out to be even funnier than many top-rating American shows.

The show is about a family living in an apartment in Singapore. They speak English but with a singaporian accent which takes some getting used to.

What makes Under One Roof funny is the array of varied characters who always have something witty to say in perfect sync with their personality. However something worth noting is the huge amount of Milo and other Nestlé products that appears in the show... there are tins of Milo, canned Milo, big drums of Milo, Milo chocolate bars... but the product placement doesn't spoil it, because the show doesn't take itself too seriously, and neither does the viewer.

This show is far funnier than alot of the comedy out there, so if it happens to be on where you live, It's worth watching.
