Very weak episode
22 December 2010 | by (Chiang Mai, Thailand) – See all my reviews

This is a weak episode of Series 1, not helped by incredibly poor casting of Blanche's father; to me, he looked more suited to be latest suitor than her much lauded father. For me, I simply could not believe in the character or the relationship between the two actors.

The plot itself is weak and concerns Blanche's father's decision to sell the family home and take up[ a career as a country and western singer, despite having no talent whatsoever.

There are the usual scattering of sassy one liners, as usual Bea Arthur taking the lion's share of these, but overall this episode left me disappointed.
