For the Brits and the Aussies!
28 April 2017 | by magiccircleSee all my reviews

My rating is really more 7-8 out of ten, I rated higher to substitute the poor reviews that I'm assuming are written by Americans that just don't get the dry, British style humour.

Anyway, this is a cleverly written and funny show. The only real drawback is that it can seem a little saccharine at times, but that's hardly a problem for a series that has seemingly won over generations of fans. This show is a modern classic and will surely be a source of entertainment for future generations to come. Just give it a go! There should be at least one character to sympathize or identify with, no matter your age or creed. Sharon, Dor and Tracy and their respective spouses/children have a myriad of funny adventures mixed in with some heartbreaking tragedy and clever wit. A must see!
