Please don't judge British comedy based on this
15 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've just tried watching this for the third time, as it's somehow now in series three.Where to start?

For one any comparisons with Father Ted are deeply insulting. Father Ted draws laughter from creating ludicrous situations out of the simple or taking a stereotypical sitcom scenario and taking it so far, that it subverts it. Mrs Brown's Boys condenses the most obvious jokes and scenarios from the worsts sitcoms of the last thirty years into one monotonous half hour.

If Lee and Herring were to write a satirical sketch show that took the mick out of sitcoms from the 70's the finished product wouldn't be that far off MBB. Unfortunately though MBB isn't a mick take and every joke is sign posted a hundred miles away - so basic in its humour it's almost saddening.

Filming in front of a live studio audience and 'breaking' in almost every scene probably appeals to some, but it just becomes tiresome and the style is rightly mercilessly mocked by 30 rock.

The laughter track is as bad as daytime US sitcoms, endless and it really grates.

Watch QI, the IT Crowd, Father Ted, 2012, The Office, Peep Show. Buy this for your Gran, she'll hopefully sleep through most of it.
