Storyline

The eccentric Flowers family are struggling to hold themselves together. Maurice Flowers (Barratt) is the author of the twisted children's books "The Grubbs", he and his wife Deborah (Colman) are barely together but yet to divorce. As Maurice fights inner demons and dark secrets, she begins to suspect that Maurice is having a homosexual affair with his Japanese illustrator Shun (Sharpe). The couple live in a creepy, creaky, crumbling old house with Maurice's dotty mother Hattie (Hoffman) and their maladjusted twin 25-year-old children Amy (Di Martino) and Donald (Rigby). Both twins are competing for the affections of their attractive neighbour Abigail (Campbell). The Flowers family and their often self-inflicted crises are surrounded by odd neighbours - agents of further headaches and heartache. Written by Mark_a_Wood <markawood@hotmail.co.uk>

how did this get commissioned? total rubbish. not funny, not engaging, sophomoric. A terrible waste of money and talent. At some point there needs to be an actor's union that allows members not to appear in career killing shows like flowers. it is difficult to review something this bad when one word, "crap" sums it up. I often think that bad drugs make bad television and this confirms this. The only excuse I can come up with for this series is bad drugs and blackmail. Stay away from this, it is a total waste of time, unless, unless, you are a fan of bad independent theater, which is where this series belongs.... like a three day run in a rainy February in a church basement in Dundee.
