I don't mean to be so negative-- I keep watching it, after all. But I have wat klagen over this show.
I'll start with the positives: Alfred van de Heuvel plays a very likable character; Grote Oma is awesome; it's subtitled, which is rare, so you can learn more Dutch as you watch/listen; I think the interactions and language is very natural and colloquial, not too stagey/cutesy.
The negatives: Maud's witch-like cackle and general nastiness; Julia's earsplitting "singing"; fawning over guest stars/BN'ers; breaking down the 4th wall to address the audience or making self-references to the show; overdone stammering of several characters when showing uncertainty; dramatic scenes comprised of bellowing.
Overall, I think it's watchable, although it feels like a show that is just about prolonging itself via vignettes.
