Yawn!
20 May 2012 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I had high expectations for Starlings, coming from the production company baby cow started by Steve Coogan and Henry Normal, who have been responsible for some of my favourite TV shows, The mighty boosh, Gavin and Stacey and of course Alan Partridge, but Starlings is just boring. It's a bit like coronation street but with a higher budget. The characters are dull, it reminds me of sitting in my own families home but with less laughs. I know it's only on episode 1 but surely for a pilot it should grab my attention. It's painful to watch nothing much happens just boring characters saying boring things, "who wants a brew", "did you sleep well", etc. I've no idea how anyone can think this is entertaining to watch a family just going about there daily business, I'm sure as the series progresses we will see different characters emerge and I hope they are more interesting than the ones we see in the first episode.
