I seem to hate both the parents. This may prove an insurmountable barrier to me enjoying it.
Quote from: Petey Pate on August 04, 2022, 08:05:21 AMThere was an interesting series of blog posts by one of the writers which gave some insight into why the show was what it was. Robert Lindsay didn't exactly come across in a great light. I've been searching around for it but with no luck.
