  • This is pretty much a one-note story. There's no real plot, just many examples of main character George complaining and denigrating everything around him. The other members of his family are the same way, but Betty, the girl next-door, is cheerful and popular. In the closest thing to a story arc, she is finally pushed too far and snaps at George, but quickly apologizes. As is normal in the "Discussion Problems in Group Living" series, nothing is resolved at the end, but George's conscience asks the viewers what they think. There doesn't seem to be much to say beyond the obvious "George should stop acting like that." Given that it's impossible to see what even Olivier could do with material like this, I don't think it's fair to pick on the actors. They speak their lines intelligibly. In sum, I'd say this is one of the lesser entries in the series.
