Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This gripping drama-comedy is cringeworthy in some ways, but viewers won't be able to turn away. The Family Law tells a story that is rarely depicted -- the goings-on in the lives of a Chinese family in Australia -- and it does so in an unassuming and realistic way. Though the show is a comedy (and there is plenty to chuckle about), it highlights serious issues -- like the parents' marital woes -- that tug at viewers' heartstrings. It's clear to see why the series was groundbreaking and well received in Australia.
