Just maybe we have a classic here...
1 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

After watching the first episode, I wasn't sure I could watch more, not because the show was badly made, but because it was so excruciating...the subjection of hapless father Ken to the sheer madness of his various family members might just yank too many chains! But with each subsequent episode, I found the evolving relationship between Ken and his dithering, maddening son-in-law more compelling..loved it when they inadvertently took E together!..and by episode 6, I was actually quite moved by Ken's acceptance of his situation. How this happens is utterly believable (within the logic of a comedy show!) and very subtly accomplished. There is a sweetness here that transcends the surface story, acknowledging in equal parts the absurdity and the strange beauty of existence. When a comedy series achieves this level of storytelling, it may just become a classic.
