not good enough
8 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I started to watch this as it had a good main cast and seemed a good storyline. BUT. How can you say it is a story of a working class family. Only one member of the family actually works and they seem, in a time of financial hardship, to be able to support around 6 other people who not only don't work in a job but, apart from mother, do no work at all around the house. How Dad, who apparently only had 3 jobs (at minimum earning power) in a month pays mortgage, council tax, gas, electric, water and food bills is beyond me. Where has Gravy got all the money to buy expensive fish, reptiles etc and expensive gaming equipment while being waited on hand and foot by mother. I like fantasy and nice family Sunday viewing with the rest of them but as this is supposed to be taking place in England not Westeros I do expect some grounding in reality.
