Funny and entertaining Family Drama/Comedy !
on 27 June 2012
Starlings (Series 1) is an 8-episode (about 45 minutes each episode) modern day drama/comedy about a large family (The Starlings) whose members have been brought together due to various circumstances.
It is funny and entertaining, but it also has a serious dimention to it. All the characters are excellent actors, likeable and play their part to perfection.
It is a 'light' drama, in which all family members genuinely care and have affection for one another despite the differences in their ages and degree of maturity.In the first or second episode, we see ALL the family sitting at the dinning table and enjoying a meal and socialising together, a scene rarely observed in TV dramas these days.
The pace of each episode is fairly slow, giving the viewer enough time to get to know and identify with each character.
Starlings is highly watchable giving one the 'feel good' factor at the end of every episode. One thing that irritated me as I was watching it on TV ( Sky 1 )was the interuptions making way for the adverts/commercials, but owning the DVD will elliminate this problem.
I sincerely hope and look forward to Series 2. Excellent Drama/Comedy ! Highly recommended !
