Great sign off to a terrific first series.
26 March 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The first series comes to an end with a truly excellent episode. It's been an awesome opening series, it makes me so sad that sitcoms these days are so bad in comparison. The typical family format has worked really well, but it's the surreal things that happen to an ordinary family that get the laughs.

Nobody messes with the Porters, or Rona, as she and Bill finally take revenge on the creepy, unpleasant area manager, Mr Castell, his final humiliation is great. Dawn was a great occasional character, so utterly potty, so much admiration for Annette Badland.

Once again, the show probes it has a heart, as Bill meets Sammy's poor family.

It really has no faults, so much fun. 9/10
