I was skeptical about this show considering the standard of comedies these days, but after watching the pilot I was pleasantly surprised! It's a funny, lighthearted series which accurately portrays the generation gap in an amusing, yet realistic way. Would definitely recommend!
So far I can't tell if I am enjoying the series or not but I am definitely enthralled. The plot has clearly been thought out thoroughly so that the audience can relate to the main character, Ethan Burke, and unravel the story alongside him.
It is worth watching, I am reading the book at the same time, only reading up to each episode each week and I can safely say that so far, it is sticking true to the source.
This definitely isn't a feel good mini series, nonetheless it provides a great insight into the thoughts and feelings of the people of Pagford and highlights a serious issue that can get to your heart.
