Yikes! This show is BAD!
8 July 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Holy mackerel! I thought this show was just some more cheap American Sitcom trash directed at lazy kids with nothing better to watch. My wife and I grimaced while we tried to determine whether the accents were fake or not. I literally had to go online to find out where the show was made. Boy were we shocked to find out it was British. There is nothing funny about this show at all! I mean the Genie in the house theme has been done so many times already, why bother? Yikes! Just awful!!! I commented on how our children were just staring at the TV. not laughing at all. I mean there is nothing funny with it whatsoever. What is the story with the father? he acts like such an airhead but he is filling out all this important paper work in the kitchen? Furthermore, I cannot figure out the family dynamics here. I suppose I would know if I saw the original pilot. To tell the truth though, I am glad that I didn't. Why waste our time with this kind of garbage?
