Editorial Reviews

Meet the Harpers: a modern, functional family... engaged in psychological warfare. Ben (Robert Lindsay), a dentist, and Susan (Zoe Wanamaker), the worst cook in the world, are certainly loving, caring parents; they just have a hard time showing it. Not that their kids make it easy: Nick has serious issues with the concept of work; Janey, like any other normal teenager, lives in her own soap opera life; and Michael likes to show up every once in a while with the odd pet rabbit. When Ben becomes paranoid that Susan and Janey are seeing another dentist, and Nick comes up with a harebrained scheme for dating girls, it may just be that Michael's rabbit is the sanest member of the household.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally in the US August 2, 2006
Format:DVD
There are a lot of Brit-com series with great humor, but I have to say "My Family" tops the list. I have been buying the series over the years from the UK in PAL format and have watched it over & over. Unlike current US sitcoms, this series has good old fashioned family humor--like it "could happen to you". Some scenes are so unbelievably hilarious--you have to rewind to see what you missed through the tears of laughter. Buy one series and you will not be able to wait for more to be produced (Six series have been released in the UK--and the quality of the comedy never dies--excellent writing and acting by all the "My Family" cast)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Funniest and Most Creative Show on TV!!! April 26, 2006
Format:DVD
My Family has to be the funniest and best show ever created. If we only had more access to the show in the United States.

Anyone interested in viewing the show before buying should tune to the BBCA channel on cable/satellite.

Please help this show work it's way to television here!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious May 13, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series is just perfect. The writing is sharp and witty, and the characters extremely likable. This is a series that is hard to stop watching. I went through all the episodes in just two sittings!! I can't wait for the next season to arrive.

5.0 out of 5 stars For that "fingers-slammed-in-the-car-door look" May 29, 2007
Format:DVD
MY FAMILY series one review

Ben Harper (Robert Lindsay; Jericho, Hornblower) is a dentist who has to suffer his children, with the aid and hinderance of his wife Susan (Zoë Wanamaker; Harry Potter). The eldest, Nick (Kris Marshall; Murder City, Love Actually) is a 20-year-old layabout constantly trying various get-rich-quick schemes rather than get a real job. Middle-child Janey (Daniela Denby-Ashe) tries to rebel while milking her parents for money and stuff. The youngest and brainiest, Michael (Gabriel Thomson) keeps mostly out of the spotlight as he takes potshots at everyone.

Series one is an excellent comedy about a modern dysfunctional (though fictional) family, sporting witty scripting, fun situations and stunts, and great casting.

There are eight episodes:

The Serpent's Tooth - Susan and Janey sees another dentist.

Pain In the Class - Michael is being bullied.

Droit de Seigneur Ben - Ben's assistant arranges a date for Janey.

The Last Resort - Ben and Susan go on a sort of second honeymoon.

Farewell To Alarms - A rash of robberies inspire Susan to get an alarm.

Death Takes A Policy - Nick's new girlfriend is an insurance saleswoman.

The Awkward Phase - Michael's first date.

Much Ado About Ben - Ben has a mild heart attack, prompting him to change his life.

I have only seen the first three series, and they get progressively worse. This, however, is well worth the purchase, as it is very entertaining throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars HILARIOUS!! October 12, 2006
Format:DVD
Family television at its best! I highly recommend this most entertaining series to anyone who likes good television and wants to laugh with every episode. Writers and actors of this caliber are hard to find and when we do, we must encourage them to keep going. The cast is so wonderful and believable as well as funny. I could see it over and over and find myself laughing again and again. But really, what is more important than laughter in times of stress and every day life?

5.0 out of 5 stars Look out Basil Fawlty February 12, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This show is the funniest thing to appear on the BBC since Tony Blair. Ben Harper is a wonderfully sarcastic character, no doubt influenced by John Cleese's Basil Fawlty (as hinted at by several in-jokes). If you are a fan of Fawlty Towers, and/or Brit humour, this is the show for you. Imagine Basil with a family, and a wife who gives as good as she gets, and you get the picture.

This will keep you laughing for years, and provide dozens of wonderful one-liners to annoy your friends with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great BBC Comedy August 29, 2007
Format:DVD
I was introduced to this Sitcom while visiting my daughter in Hawaii this summer. Even though it was several seasons into the series, I was able to relate to the story line and characters...made me laugh like I haven't in several months. I will be purchasing the entire series!
