Thoroughly Enjoyable!
3 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I find it hard to believe that myself and the previous reviewer are talking about the same series! "Starlings" is a wonderful family drama for Sunday evenings. I say 'drama' because it is more a drama series than comedy - the humour is subtle and incidental, gently complementing each storyline. It is not slapstick, outrageous or 'in your face', which would ruin the nature of the programme and compromise its credibility. The family is realistic, we can empathise with each character - all thoughtfully created and portrayed, blending well. The cast is superb, it was especially pleasing to see Brendan Coyle and John Dalgleish teamed again since their Lark Rise To Candleford days. Each episode features a specific storyline with the family's ongoing undercurrents woven in, bringing continuity and credence. We witness good times, bad times, emotional highs and lows, and accompany the family through their various incidents and mishaps during day-to-day life. A warm, gently humorous portrayal of family life, a real 'feel good' drama. Well done, Sky 1!
