Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Grandma's House - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this sitcom on a whim after watching "Do Nothing," Simon's stand-up set. Simon stars as a version of himself, which gives the whole sitcom a pleasing sense of familiarity and realism. The first episode especially introduces the dichotomy between the rude, acerbic Simon on NMTB and the sensitive if-a-little-narcissistic Simon in Grandma's House.
It really is quite an interesting sitcom, and I've heard that a second series is being shot.
The actors in it Simon himself, Samantha Spiro, Rebecca Front, and Geoffery Hutchings (who sadly passed on recently) all put in fantastically subdued performances, lending the series a feel reminiscent of the Royle Family. A familiarity sorely missing from the many sitcoms.
Overall. Buy this. You will not regret it.
