Familiar sitcom territory but with boundless charm
6 September 2018 | by bgsmallSee all my reviews

This TV series finds us in familiar sitcom territory, - the nuclear family in a pleasant suburban setting with a straight-laced patriarch (i.e. Ken) but with the addition of a hippy, leftfield son-in-law (Cuckoo) who plays 'funny' to Ken's 'straight'.

Again, I really enjoyed this and would have to of done to have watched all three series. Beyond the occasional slapstick moments and often cringe-worthy plotlines' this provides a vehicle for a gentler more humane sort of comedy that is good for the soul.
