At last, a British comedy that I can watch with my whole family
22 July 2012 | by strangebynameSee all my reviews

Over the last twenty years it seems that sitcoms have dwindled away and comedy in general has been ushered to past the watershed. Gone are the days when you could watch a comedy program as a family, as a child I was lucky enough to have Only Fools and Horses, Butterflies, Dad's Army, Open All Hours.... the list goes on. Today's families have very few quality programs to watch together. With the possible exception of "Miranda" on the BBC.(Coincidentally this program features two of the stars of Miranda, the incredibly talented Sally Phillips and the excellent Tom Conti) Granted, it's not going to tear up the world of comedy, but this sitcom has a lot going for it. It's very gentle, silly, and sentimental Great characters, strong relationships, smart dialogue and a lot of heart.
