This show is terrible BUT...
18 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...the actors do a terrific job of being the most infuriating people you will probably ever see on TV. If this show is indicative of British family dynamics then God help the Queen. The stories are cliché' except they do skip over the typical issues faced by step families. The young boy is a poster child for ADHD on the surface, but actually just lacks any discipline or structure. He is allowed to run amok with basically no correction. The younger daughter is merely the son's sidekick with no noteworthy story lines. Eldest daughter is the typical low self-esteemed, college dropout desperate for Daddy's approval. The father is self-centered and overly focused on his work. The mother is a pushover that is left to try to be the glue when all she does is enable everyone else to behave poorly. Her mother is a shrew who whines incessantly about being there when in fact she has no where else to go. The only likable person in this family isn't even family but the owner of the compound they all live in, Dup. Blunt, coarse, and boozed, he is the only person who expresses any real emotional depth. He efforts to help the family often end badly or hilariously, but at least he's trying to do something for someone else. Everyone else is completely self-absorbed in their own problems - usually created by their own stupidity. I've only seen 3 seasons of the show, the last two seasons being strictly background noise for housework. The scenery and animals are gorgeous. It's a shame there wasn't equally impressive writing.
