I used to not like spending hours in front of the telly watching British comedy sitcoms. A few years back, I could not get the British accent, could not figure out a bunch load of British words and could not relate on certain British expressions. But then, time was able to turn me into a fan of British comedy shows after going through seasons 1 through 4 of The IT Crowd. Him & Her, Fresh Meat, White Van Man, Gavin & Stacey, Black Books, Spaced - only to name of a few of my favourite English tv shows.
So anyhoo, my boyfriend got a tip from his best mate a couple of nights ago. Thinking that it might be something good, we watched the pilot episode of Grandma’s House the following day.
Grandma’s House has just released its second season with its first episode being aired on 19 April 2012. With a star rating of 7.4 out of the possible 10 on IMDB, and with season 2 being released this year, my expectation was truly sky high.
Hmmm. I do not know what to say really. After watching the pilot episode [originally aired on 09 August 2010], I found myself not really happy. It did not bore me totally. Some parts somehow made me laugh at least but it wasn’t sufficient enough to get me going, if you know what I mean.
I will certainly spend some time watching its second and third episodes one day just to make sure that I will not be missing something huge if ever I decide to scratch if off my to-watch list.
