BSG Review: A terrible sitcom which has some how managed to con the BBC into giving it not one, not two but three series. Whilst there is the very occasional funny moment the show is wrapped up in so much cuddly saccharine and pathos it is sickening to watch. The main problem is that this family sitcom is too afraid to break away for even a moment from being 100% politically correct, such as shame as Jasper Carrott can be very funny when given the chance. Maybe watch with the family but avoid if possible.
