Unchallenging, endearing, fun
1 September 2013 | by (Adelaide) – See all my reviews

House Husbands is set in Melbourne, Victoria and tells the story of 4 diverse, interconnected families where the husband has become the stay at home dad. Its story lines tell the day to day issues they face as parents as well as partners and friends, and the interplay between the adults and children is wonderful. It's not of the highest caliber in terms of script writing or acting and it's certainly not up to the standard of the other new Australian, Melbourne based family show, Offspring, but it's a good escape and the characters are endearing and it's fun to see what situations they're going to get themselves into each episode.

The four families are diverse and face quite different issues, but the development of the relationships between them and how they help and support each other through their crises is lovely to watch.

It swings between comedy and drama - so I suppose you could classify it as a family dramedy - and I do love the quality of TV we're currently producing in Australia, including this one.
