Is It Any Good?

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

This humorous series offers a contemporary"‘reversal of fortune" narrative with lots of irreverent humor. Debbie Harper wants the best for her husband and kids, but the choices she makes aren't always the best. Nonetheless, her presence is a positive one, thanks to her education, resilience, and willingness to problem solve, especially when it comes to using her engineering skills to do it. This, combined with the dynamics between her tight-knit family, and some crazy situations, make Harper House an entertaining watch.
