"Engaging comedy drama" —The Birmingham Post (U.K.)
"Great fun" —The Times (U.K.)
It's business as usual when Mack Carter (Danny Webb, The Bill)—felonious breadwinner for a dysfunctional family of lowlifes—gets charged with robbery. But when Mack is sentenced to four years in jail, his wife, Lindsay (a deliciously brazen Amanda Redman, New Tricks), resolves to clean up her life. She's determined to drag her conniving children back to the straight and narrow as well. Going legit isn't so simple, though.
Lindsay finds herself dealing with impending poverty, thankless retail jobs, a pair of troublemaking sons, two cunning daughters, and a father-in-law who may be faking his Alzheimer's. On top of that, she struggles to fend off men from her past who hope to take advantage of her compromised position—including the detective (Sean Pertwee, Cold Feet) investigating one of her sons (Matthew McNulty, The Syndicate). Can the Carters go from corrupt to squeaky clean without coming apart at the seams?

Amanda Redman is very solid in this often very enjoyably raunchy series. Not really to be taken very seriously, all the characters provide a lot of fun and interesting characterization, from the not as daft as he seems grandpa to the airheaded and narcissistic wannabe model and the young and guilelessly pervy constable. The directing of some comic scenes is really masterful.
Yes, the plots and the writing are at times weak, but are made to work.
This really deserved another season at least. Much less entertaining shows go on season after season. I for one laughed constantly through these 6 episodes. I am very glad it is available on Amazon Prime.

Not what I expected and at first I was not taken with it at all, but as I continued watching the characters took shape and in the end it was a funny series. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Douglas W. Fielder
