Worst Ever Sitcom?
19 May 2004 | by (Manchester, UK) – See all my reviews

This is dreadful. How much further can Skinner fall? I thought he was one of the funniest people in Britain at the time of Fantasy Football and his live shows of that era. His "chat" show saw him going soft and buddying up to cretinous b-grade celebs, and now this...

Basically, it's his stand-up act CRAMMED into a sitcom format. The other characters exist merely to mouth strange convoluted non-sequiturs which we then realize are the feed-lines for Frank's "gags". All they're short of is a red flag and a bullhorn to shout "INCREDIBLY PALLID JOKE COMING!"

There's misogyny, homophobia, a script so weak you feel like asking it to have a lie-down, and acting performances that would be embarrassing in a school play. (Re Frank's Family: Memo to sitcom writers - KIDS CAN'T ACT! Get it through your thick skulls!)

The son is particularly aggravating - one of those kids that only exist in TV land, always making with the pithy one-liners, delivered deadpan but with a peculiar squint, like his shoes are pinching or something.

Frank, get back to basics. ITV seem to be trying to get rid of this stinker as quickly as possible (three episodes on consecutive nights this week) - Frank should follow suit and do what he does best.
