Movie Reviews

Finally in the US
jeaniusshops2 | WA, USA | 08/02/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There are a lot of Brit-com series with great humor, but I have to say "My Family" tops the list. I have been buying the series over the years from the UK in PAL format and have watched it over & over. Unlike current US sitcoms, this series has good old fashioned family humor--like it "could happen to you". Some scenes are so unbelievably hilarious--you have to rewind to see what you missed through the tears of laughter. Buy one series and you will not be able to wait for more to be produced (Six series have been released in the UK--and the quality of the comedy never dies--excellent writing and acting by all the "My Family" cast)"
The Funniest and Most Creative Show on TV!!!

"My Family has to be the funniest and best show ever created. If we only had more access to the show in the United States.

Anyone interested in viewing the show before buying should tune to the BBCA channel on cable/satellite.

Please help this show work it's way to television here!"

"MY FAMILY series one review

Ben Harper (Robert Lindsay; Jericho, Hornblower) is a dentist who has to suffer his children, with the aid and hinderance of his wife Susan (Zoë Wanamaker; Harry Potter). The eldest, Nick (Kris Marshall; Murder City, Love Actually) is a 20-year-old layabout constantly trying various get-rich-quick schemes rather than get a real job. Middle-child Janey (Daniela Denby-Ashe) tries to rebel while milking her parents for money and stuff. The youngest and brainiest, Michael (Gabriel Thomson) keeps mostly out of the spotlight as he takes potshots at everyone.

Series one is an excellent comedy about a modern dysfunctional (though fictional) family, sporting witty scripting, fun situations and stunts, and great casting.

There are eight episodes:

The Serpent's Tooth - Susan and Janey sees another dentist.
Pain In the Class - Michael is being bullied.
Droit de Seigneur Ben - Ben's assistant arranges a date for Janey.
The Last Resort - Ben and Susan go on a sort of second honeymoon.
Farewell To Alarms - A rash of robberies inspire Susan to get an alarm.
Death Takes A Policy - Nick's new girlfriend is an insurance saleswoman.
The Awkward Phase - Michael's first date.
Much Ado About Ben - Ben has a mild heart attack, prompting him to change his life.

I have only seen the first three series, and they get progressively worse. This, however, is well worth the purchase, as it is very entertaining throughout."

"This series is just perfect. The writing is sharp and witty, and the characters extremely likable. This is a series that is hard to stop watching. I went through all the episodes in just two sittings!! I can't wait for the next season to arrive."
