I had high expectations for this. Somewhat fell flat for me.
The new concept, studio audience and celebs didn't quite sit well with me. It felt a bit unnecessary and force fed. Took also some of the original attraction away. The celebs knew and played their extra parts, but that just it. They just were there... But most awkward moments, Mammy saved. Some sharpshooter one liners that blew me away laughing.
Never the less, some jokes still hit the bulls eye and the over all series was a enjoyable in whole. The characters were as before, and cast had fun portraying them. Cracking out in middle scenes. These were the saviors of the series.
If they still continue making the Mrs Browns Boys. I hope they go back to old sitcom way. That still worked best.
