I gave up mid way through the 80s episode. 50s was very good, 60s were excellent, 70's again was very good, but throughout the series, the two brat kids have really shredded my nerves. 'Dad' has been great, the 'foxy' mum has also embraced the experiment, but the modern children with their continual OMG! attitude have ruined the show. Anyone else watched it? BBC2 Tuesday at 20.00hrs
Haven't enjoyed it as much as Chantelle and Brandon in the last series but it's had its moments. Personally, I don't mind the kids too much but the mother really gets on my nerves, what with walking out of church and refusing to sing the national anthem etc.
“Jean Paul Belmondo and Mary Quant got stoned to say the least”.
The most disturbing thing by far is how sweaty your setee would get from that 'Home Solarium Kit'!
I was disappointed that they didn't brainwash the children and adults, turning the family into axe murderers, by showing them a video nasty. That was the best bit about the 1980s..
Instead the kids went into a mock up video shop and the boys rented the rather homoerotic, Top Gun.....! If that had been a video shop where I was brought up he would have got beat up for trying to hire anything less than The Evil Dead! And that was just by the dude in the video store!
But then again it must have been 1987 and The Evil Dead was still unavailable then......... Wait a minute......... When 'Top Gun' came out in 1987 on VHS it had a '15' certificate. Making that transaction illegal!...... Seth Ashby-Hawkins is only 12! He should never had been able to rent Top Gun in the first place.. The makers of the show should be prosecuted for the corruption of minors..! They should be given an 80s jail sentence or at the very least been made to be a 1980s Tory MP for a week..... We could call the ensuing furore Top Gate? Outrageous..
I quite enjoyed the recent Further Back In Time For Dinner series. Good to see the Robshaw family back. They recreated the 1900's to the 1940's. Mum Rochelle's disasterous attempts at cooking were always hilarious. Social historian, Polly Russell is a bit tasty.
