Underrated and under-appreciated
8 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Of course the original show is better, with Sebastian Cabot as Giles French. It isn't always hilarious, but it is relaxing to watch. This remake show is inferior, but actually not that bad. I don't get the low IMDb rating, it isn't that terrible. And I couldn't disagree more with the external review, Family Affair has its faults but it is still watchable. One thing that the producers should have scrapped was the laughter track; I for one found it distracting. The show does start off slow, but after the fifth episode or so, it kicks off. And Holiday Fever is one of the better episodes of the show for me. As much as I liked the performances of the two youngsters, they were very charming and turned in delightful performances, I don't understand why they made Jody younger than Buffy. Still the show, which was short lived, has its merits. The theme tune is really pleasant, and the opening credits were visually a delight. The show is still funny, if you ignore the laughter track, and I actually liked the acting from the adult leads. Tim Curry, a very underrated actor and unjustly too, was perfect as Mr French. I don't think he looked at all bored here, in fact he had some very droll and wise lines that he delivered effortlessly, and Gary Cole is amusing as Bill. Caitlin Wachs is a sheer delight as Sissy and brightens up every scene she's in, and this is just proof she was developing into a very talented actress. There was one episode when she wore a balldress, and she was absolutely stunning, like a princess. All in all, a very underrated show, could have been better, but nowhere near as bad as people lead you to believe. 7/10 Bethany Cox
