5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing, but the best, 12 July 2014
Not a lot happens in this series. No violence, no East-ender type screaming raving rants. It just a story of very decent (if slightly weird) people getting on with life. So well is it structured, so well is it acted that I was totally absorbed in the life and lives of the family the series portrays.
You simply cannot write a lot about this series. It is just being immersed in a wonderfully warm, reassuring and at time amusing world. Was there second series?

2.0 out of 5 stars Absolute tosh, 7 Jun 2014
TV in the seventies must have been dire if we sat down to watch this stuff.
The dialogue is terrible enough but in the hands of wooden acting and ham-fisted directing this becomes almost funny (almost but not quite)
Where there is a good idea buried in the plot (such as in Baby) the writer just cannot get the mileage out of the idea and the rotten acting just completely defeats a potentially great story.
As a museum piece, entertaining bt six in a row is too much, even for a rainy afternoon.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why were they made?, 26 April 2014
Did somebody decide to make a cheap television version of Indiana Jones for people who are too lazy to go the cinema?
These films are simply terrible. Rambling narrative, atrocious acting and generally as boring as a et weekend at the seaside.
It simply isn't possible to make a low budget story about a treasure hunter. At least not with the lacl of imagination and poor actors in this series. Complete waste of money
