I am writing a review from my phone so I am going to make this short. There is no US comedy, in 2013, that can compare to this one. I realize it was done in 2012...but i watched it this year. The Mindy project may be the one show that comes close to providing similar entertainment. I hope they make more episodes for this Christmas season. It is a shame there were only 6 episodes. The Aussie family encounters typical and atypical family matters over 6 different Christmasses. The situations they are in, the wit the characters possess...fantastic. The writers did a brilliant job. Again, I'm just disappointed that they didn't continue with this gem.

I came across this show while looking through the available programs on HULU. The show is hysterical. My only complaint is that as a 1/2 hour show you do not get the in depth character development and interaction that is needed. The show is about the Moody family getting together every Christmas. The cast barely skim over what has happened over the last year since last X-mas. There is/isn't a relationship that develops between one of the Moody sons and his cousin's girlfriend. There interaction is sparse at best and is basically the whole premise of the show. I love the show, I hope they keep it going but it needs that extra 1/2 hour to allow the characters to develop.
Every year Dan Moody returns home to Australia for Christmas and we're
given a glimpse into the year that was for the Moodys. It's a
brilliant, layered comedy told in an original way with a fantastic
The show not only holds up when re-watching episodes, but the true genius of the writing is revealed as early episodes set up payoffs that come much later. It's a pity there are only six episodes, but the story continues with The Moodys.
I truly hope they'll do another series, but either way, A Moody Christmas is going to be a staple of my holiday viewing.
