Imagine a family, that features every possible eccentricity, and you've got the Robinsons. And imagine a series not afraid to go that tiny step further - yet also know where to stop unless it would get too silly - , then also imagine very good acting - I didn't realise that my Cymbeline Richard Johnson was in it, great. There is in fact not much more to have me laughing to tears. The funny thing is that though I often anticipated what will happen, the actual execution made me laugh even harder, like: Oh no, they won't do that now?!" - as a Rhenish person this was somewhat reminiscent of Rhenish carnival speeches. Mark Bussell and Justin Sbresni have got a very vivid imagination indeed and are great observers of the human condition.
