Crawford tells the story of a very quirky family. The father is ex-police and suffered a brain injury so now he can not talk and his brain misfires sometimes. The mother designs breakfast cereal. The kids are made up of a daughter a bit lost, one son who is balding at a young age and another who has been kicked out of his band and found he has a skill with Raccoon whispering. Mostly it seems to be about Don (the son who has been kicked out the band). He sets himself up as a humane raccoon catcher and moves in with a vet student who lives in the storeroom of a shop. This is very quirky but very funny. Its hard not to love all the characters. Its very gentle too. There is no real examinations of big issues, politics or token characters that tick boxes for TV stations. It really is just a nice program to watch. The first two episodes I found not so good but maybe you need to get to know the characters to really enjoy the show. The show is more amusing that big laugh out loud moments. Its very well acted and written.
Really though, if you want to just be entertained without having a message forced down your throat then watch this. The family don't try and get one over on each other. They don't always get on or be the best people they love each other the way families do. I really hope this makes it to a second season but its probably be unlikely. If it does then hopefully people will take notice and give it the attention it deserves.
