Clever British Sitcom with a familiar flavor
30 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Robinsons would be another dysfunctional family to add to the kooky family list, except that there is a new nuance in the characters that somehow turns them from typical and trite to understood and lovable. Ed is the strained core that keeps the rest of the family together, and falls into unfortunate situations trying to fix his familial issues, as well as his own problems, which often revolve around troubled romances. I personally love this show and happen to be a big fan of Martin Freeman. Of his sitcom work, I think this is his best. If you're an American lucky enough to catch it's occasional syndication on BBC America, give it a watch...at the very least, the charming accents should be enough to make the show enjoyable.
