A refreshingly honest, very funny and original show
9 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm afraid I came in after the show had started not really knowing quite what was going on but took to the humour and gradually worked out what the general character breakdown was (with a little help from the internet). I have to say that I thought it was very funny although maybe the characters of the family members were perhaps a little over exaggerated. Other than that the part of Emma played by Amelia Bullmore appeared to have been treated with a great deal of thought and care and I suspect a lot of research into the subject of transsexualism had been undertaken. My only (minor) criticism was probably the last scene with Emma in front of the mirror and the revealing of her (very obviously latex) "manhood" - I think her actions and expressions portrayed very well what she was thinking and it was therefore unnecessary to actually show what she so obviously felt was the offending article. I think that this comedy/drama could make for a very successful television series with maybe a little fine tuning of the family members eccentricities. Altogether though a refreshingly honest, very funny and original show.
