The children, especially during the earlier series, could only act for 30-45 minutes at a time. Often when they were out of shot, the directors would often stand in their place so that the adults would know where to look. See more »
When I first saw the adverts for this show all that crossed my mind was the horror of another family sitcom full of clichés and ridiculous situations.
So I had to watch it. Everyone needs something to bitch about, right?

The show should be boring and bland. Nothing happens except a family go about there day to day business and you cant help but wanting more.
Due to great acting, brilliant writing and ingenious improvisation you are left wondering exactly why you find yourself hooked to what your family is doing downstairs.
