Discovered this a couple of weeks back and binged the first series. Very enjoyable. That snobby woman is great.

It’s great... but, the annoying girlfriend and son are just a bit too annoying if I’m in the wrong frame of mind.

The son is irritating, they could do without him.

Agreed, I also like the grandparents. I guess I can relate with the granddad's outlook...

Good final episode tonight but I'm not really sure where else they can go with it now.

the "girls just wanna have fun" scene was so sad frown despite having no dialogue. So well done.

But I agree with the comments about the son+girlfriend. A bit too dappy sometimes.

I'm enjoying this programme. Very cringeworthy with the poor mum being taken advantage of. I still see scope for the programme to continue into the next series.

Despite being nearly 20 years younger than the mum, I'm finding I have some weird crush on her!

Maybe it will be based at Michael's apartment in Spain with the family visiting

Friend of mine worked on it, I love the awkwardness. Any scene with Cathy and Michael is wonderful to watch.

Son & girlfriend can irritate on occasion though
