Brilliant show!
4 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

When I first watched this series when it came out I already found it funny, witty and at times I could really see some of my own family life in the interactions between the actors. But now that I've watched the show a second time I'm only now starting to begin to realise its sheer brilliance. The characters became that more real to me, Simon's awkwardness is at times (all the time actually) really endearing, the way the grandmother just tries to keep everyone happy reminds me a lot of my own grandmother... It's definitely worth your time to watch it and then maybe let it sink in and watch it again some time later and come to the same realisation as me: Grandma's house is a magnificent series and it just keeps getting better as the episodes progress!
