| A fun and relaxing little comedy series
I really like Bless This House, it isn't my favourite show ever, but it is fun and relaxing. The look of the series may be a little dated by today's standards, but I do like the scenery especially and the camera work was nice. The writing is constantly witty and funny, and the casting is very well done indeed. Comedy legend Sidney James is pretty much incomparable as Sid, a grouchy father figure who tries to assert his domination over his family, and Diana Coupland is great value as his wife Jean who serves as a sort of foil to his plans. Anthony Jackson, Sally Geeson, Patsy Rowlands and Robin Stewart are appealing in the supporting roles. The theme tune is catchy and definitely memorable, I love a good theme tune and this one was a good one, no more than good, it was great! The situations that Sid gets himself into makes for compulsive viewing, they range from funny to hilarious. I do agree that Series 6 isn't as strong as the other seasons, but overall I enjoy Bless This House. 9/10 Bethany Cox
