Product Overview

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. Includes all eight episodes from Season 1 of this hit television show from Great Britain!

Editors Note
Note Is the Harper family living in West London or a lunatic asylum? This BBC comedy series follows loopy dentist Ben (Robert Lindsay) and his gastronomy-challenged wife, Susan (Zoë Wanamaker), as they raise three very different children--devoted loafer Nick (Kris Marshall), drama queen Janey (Daniela Denby-Ashe), and resident oddball Michael (Gabriel Thomson)--with loving distaste and mordant wit. This collection presents the complete first season of the British sitcom, created by American writer and producer Fred Barron (SEINFELD).

Review Even at its funniest moments, My Family falls far short of the gold standard it visibly strains to emulate. On the laugh-o-meter, these first episodes might find themselves alongside a below-par episode of Home Improvement. In fact, that is the show My Family most resembles - safe, mediocre, and square as robot crap. Even Tim Allen and crew, though, find ways to be subversive in ways that My Family has yet to discover. This does not mean that it won't hit its stride later in the season (watch an early episode of Seinfeld or The Simpsons sometime for a quick reminder that great comedy needs time), but for now it is stuck right in the middle of the road, with all the flatness and deadness that come with the territory.
