Customer Review

on 29 March 2011
Eric Feeble is a 40-year-old divorced man who lives with his two children (a son who never speaks, just puts everything including the kitchen sink in his mouth and a daughter who is allergic to everything under the sun). Eric is constantly out-shined by the Perfect family next door, and is forever being troubled by his ex-wife, his alcoholic au pair and of course his boss (imagine a cross between 1984's Big Brother and the tsar from the stop-motion version of Kije). These people provide regular headaches for Eric, and he is constantly finding himself in hectic situations. Storylines involve a nativity play, preparing to meet a Japanese hygeine obsessive after having been flushed into the sewers, having the roof unexpectedly removed, going on a paint-balling contest and trying to console his son who has a crush on the quite repugnantly snooty girl next door.

This was a brilliant series. The characters are all well-defined, the storylines are well-written and there is just the right mix between social satire, cartoon slapstick and dark humour. How many shows can take an old cliche like the boss coming to dinner and turn it into half-an-hour of hilarious comedy? Added to that are some first-class vocals. This was a DVD set well worth waiting for.
