How to get on the viewer's nerves...
25 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

GRANDMA'S LAST WISH is an absolutely horrible, "comic" episode of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE. It was the penultimate episode of the first series and sees the series unwisely veering into the category of broad comedy in its depiction of a put-upon grandmother who decides to teach her overbearing family a lesson just before she's put into a retirement home.

The majority of the running time is packed out with those obnoxious over-acting characters so beloved of American comedy shows, and their actions and manners are so repulsive that it becomes hard not to just turn the whole thing off. Needless to say the story is non-existent and the humour falls flat every time.
