This review is from: Bouquet of Barbed Wire/Another Bouquet [DVD] (DVD)
I remember this series from the original broadcast and bought the DVD after renting it from Amazon. Imagine a middle class family on self-destruct and you have an image of what's to come! The action is based on the outrageous behaviour of the Manson family. The selfish and spoilt daughter Pru causes major strife because of the obsession of her father. Stand by for affairs galore! The plot is far too complex and shocking to outline in full but the way the tensions and emotional turmoil are handled is utterly superb! The quality of the performances is stunning at times: anger, shock, despair, total selfishness and even death create some of the most gripping moments you will have ever seen. Be prepared to be totally absorbed by this quite outrageous family! Buy it now and I bet you will end up watching it all very quickly without wanting to wait for each new episode! In fact, I'm off to watch it all again.....
