Don't Poo-Poo the Tiramisu
My one wish for this show is that Stephan Mangan is not a writer for it, as with previous work, especially Episodes, I have been blown away and chuckled a lot! Alas with this show, it could not be farther from that!
I think this has been billed wrongly, this is a family drama more than comedy, which is the problem, it tries to be light hearted but simply the subject matter is not, and this leads to very awkward scenes, not least of which is the restaurant scene in episode 1. It was not funny and actually I cringed at some parts and was slightly offended in places. But this seems to be Sky style programming now, push the boundaries and take the risk!
I did see the trailers and was confused how the subject matter would work, and the answer from the first episode is it doesn't, it is no fault of any of the actors, it is entirely (again of recent times) of the script writing, it just is not suitable for the genre. I won't be watching any more episodes, but then I am sure some will find this as acceptable entertainment!
