Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

This decidedly British series takes an extreme but humorous look at what life can be like when adult children return home. It highlights some of the struggles parents have when trying to balance their desire to be supportive with their desire to push them to grow up, make responsible choices, and be able to fend for themselves.

Granted, the premise of the show can only take the story so far. But later episodes feature lots of changes, including cast members like Twilight's Taylor Lautner, and unexpected, zany twists. British comedy fans will enjoy it, and parents on both sides of the pond will appreciate some of the dilemmas presented.
