Falls so flat
29 April 2017 | by alexjamesactorSee all my reviews

With a talent like Miriam Margolyes I was shocked by how flat this series feels. The chemistry between the principal characters is non existent. This means that the entire thing is off. I actually think the script is solid and could have been hilarious with the right delivery. I find the daughter character is missing comedic timing and that thing that makes the innuendos funny and naughty instead of crass. I want to believe her exasperation with her larger than life mum but it's all very wooden. I've watched the pilot and half the second episode and haven't laughed once. If this is your kind of thing I would watch Peter Kays CarShare which is literally a laugh a minute.
