Charlie and his family move from London to run a bed and breakfast by the sea. Charlie and his friends Ben and Alison always want to do the right thing, but somehow they just keep getting into trouble.
'Jinx' is turning out to be one of those rare treats: a family sitcom that just works. We've been hooked. It's colourful, energetic, and most of all funny. Mischievous 'Cookie' is joyously played, and the other cast have a lovely sense of comic timing. Kudos also to 'Lulu' who holds all the mayhem together. It's very much in the mould of American sitcoms (maybe even 50's coms), but that's no bad thing. Small criticism is that the episodes don't seem long enough; just as the stories are getting into their stride, the show ends. But apart from that, the stories are like The Simpsons, being complete, crazy, morality tales. Recommended.
