  • A prime example of how a once-enjoyable series has deteriorated over the years.

    2.0
    My Family never claimed to be particularly original or groundbreaking as comedy, but as the seasons have gone by, the old formula has steadily become eroded as a source of laughs and it's become increasingly apparent that the programme has gone well past its use-by date.



    This Christmas special is a typical showcase of My Family's increasingly tired attitude toward itself. It's filled with old jokes that long ago lost their punch and cheap laugh lines that can barely raise even a wry smile. It's no wonder that the series' two leads have publicly expressed their frustrations with the low quality of the writing.moreless
