A strait-laced British inspector is transferred to St. Marie Island's police department. Unfortunately, he hates the sun, sea, and sand. In later series, an accident-prone officer heads the Caribbean investigative team.
This series takes an intimate yet humorous take on the trials and tribulations of a family living in Walworth, south-east London. Childhood sweethearts Roly Crouch and Natalie have been married for 18 years. With two demanding teenagers, Aiden and Adele, plus live-in parents, Langley and Sylvie, the pressure on the Crouch household sometimes reaches boiling point. Written by
I live in the United States, so I never had the opportunity to watch this show when it first aired. But let me assure you that all of the negative press and all of the on-line bashing is totally unwarranted. I think that some people who have reviewed this show are so used to seeing the same stereotypical images that permeate Western culture, they just couldn't except that some Black families are normal and not over the top when it comes to TV comedy. I promise you that you will enjoy this show. This show is the funniest thing to come around in decades. There is nothing like it on U.S. television, and it's a shame that I had to wait until 8 years after this show aired to experience the comedic genius of its cast and guest-stars. Find it on DVD if you can, and get ready to die laughing.
