Good in the beginning...weak these days!
'Familie' is the longest running soap in Belgium and is still one of the most popular. Even though its story lines became more and more predictable.

They describe the show as 'a show based on real-life' experiences. I doubt that. You can't imagine which situations the characters went through. Thousands of murders, dead people becoming alive again, love affairs, hostage by terrorists, ...you think of something, they've been through it.

In the beginning, the characters were all one big family: the nagging grandmother, the oldest son who is a famous businessman, the other dumb and clumsy son, the daughter with a messed up life (she was an alcoholic, survived cancer, lost 3 children,...). These days, there is almost nothing left of the original family. Which is a shame.
