Happy Family was an excellent show! Season 1 Review
21 May 2005 | by erdguzSee all my reviews

This was a really funny show. It deserved a second season and the way things ended in season 1 it would have been very interesting. When I first watch happy family i wasn't impressed at all and I missed an episode due to my disappointment. So, it started of slowly, it wasn't really that funny but then towards the middle of the season it picked up and by the end it was making crack up all the time. As soon as Maggie got booted off the show became a lot funnier because Tim had to move back home. Every single cast member performed brilliantly and the material was they had to work with was quality towards the end of the season. Even Alex played by JP was funny on occasions. And the materials focus was spread well throughout the whole family. My favourite character would have to be Peter Brennan and Tim. The episode where the parents decided to be hip an smoke pot was 9/10 and so was the tooth or dental wars episode. But, the best episodes were the last two, the first one when Tim was diagnosed with stress was an absolute crack up.I couldn't stop laughing when i saw Peter's expression and the fact that Tim is a bum, how could he be stress! And the part where he GAVE UP on him and then later on had to care again because he got a job was a classic. And the ending of the final episode was superb! I tape those to episodes and i'm gonna make sure i don't tape over them they were absolutely hilarious. Also, the episode were Dr. Brennan wanted a friend, the ending seen in the plane, how funny was that!!! Excellent script 2nd half of the season! 1st half of season 7/10 last half 9.5/10
