Strange but Possibly Not Wonderful
30 December 2015 | by reggie-at-randomSee all my reviews

Raised by Wolves is, well, kind of funny in that laugh of shocking discovery sort of way. If you can decipher the accents good on you, but they all strike me as being "acted" in an especially broad style, rather like that inverse class giving-the-finger manner still too common in England these days. Raised in a mixed Scottish/Welsh household, I guess the midland inferiority complex missed me entirely. Consequently, while the financial challenges of such a household are hugely reminiscent, I realised all too soon that the extremely cavalier social, economic and moral stance (especially in the adult 'mentors' God help us) was more one at which I could only cringe with rolling eyes and a shaking head. Managed to endure two episodes but it just seemed to get worse and I trembled for the future of the little ones. I can't laugh at the train wreck results of irresponsible parenting and poor moral choices. So... No thanks.
