The trilogy presents a comically fraught weekend from three different perspectives, as family and in-laws gather at the decaying country house of their bedridden mother; the drink flows, and hidden enmities, intimate secrets, and uncomfortable truths emerge through the veneer of jollity and civility.
Perfect example of typical British TV from the 1970s. Overwritten, overacted, under produced and under-directed. Several annoying 'regular' Brits talking and talking and talking, all of whom seem to think the goings on are much more shocking and funny than any modern audience would. Basically a videotaped play, with competent actors, and poor, regional theater level production values. If you like that sort of thing, enjoy.
