Early on I thought this family was a bunch of complainers. But the big take-away from this really is how hard life was in the wartime era. And as I watched I noted that (as hard as it is to believe) the 1940s family still had it easier than the medieval family. etc. Even if you think you don't have any free time in 2010, it's only due to your sense of privilege, caused by time-saving devices; after whose introduction we promptly forget what immense, bodily labor was involved in the previous chore it replaced (The vacuum omits rug-beating).

The youngest son is a perfect angel in this show. From the moment they put him in his 40s clothes, he looks like he belongs there.
