It's like two different shows
18 May 2004 | by laughin_princessSee all my reviews

I watched the first two series of this show + it was fantastic. Cosy Sunday drama kinda thing, so not everyone's cup of tea, but it was quite unique as far as I'm concerned...very quirky and different. It was not afraid to put major setbacks in the family's life, and not afraid to have a sad ending to an episode unlike other cosy dramas I've seen. However, at the beginning of series 3, when the original family moved out and a new one moved in, the show lost something for me. I had grown attached to the old family, and to replace them so suddenly made me stop watching, so I can't really comment on the show post series 2, but from what I saw it wasn't a patch on the first two series.
