Utterly Fantastic!
5 May 2005 | by LiterateSideUpSee all my reviews

I was, and still am, a huge fan of the Trapped series. I think each of them are masterfully written, brilliantly acted and a great watch for most ages. But when I first heard the tile for this last episode, after finishing my giggle fit, I was rather disappointed. Von Trapped, Trapped Beauty... and King of the Fridges. It somehow didn't capture me like the others. After watching it, however, I found I adored the show most out of the three. A spectacular ending if there ever was one, and some very funny tongue-in-cheek moments. Don't be put of by the title, this is a very good programme that can actually make you feel deeply about the characters and say 'awh' every now and again. Superb. A must see, if you have the chance.
