It's the 1950's and Sidney "Pop" Larkin has managed to avoid paying taxes for practically his entire working life. He embarks on a number of ill-fated entrepreneurial ventures and his daughter causes more than one head to turn with her flirtatious ways. But the flamboyant Larkins are thoroughly devoted to each other in good times and bad.

Light-heart, zany Brit humor. Stellar cast of some Brit greats: David Jason (Touch of Frost & others) Pam Ferris (Call the Mid-wife most recent) Zeta-Jones really young & lovely. Pretty tame for Americans - I think it leans more toward fans of Brit films.

Set in Kent in the '50's this is a delightful mini-series that saw Catherine Zeta-Jones begin her accent into fame as she shines beautifully as Mariette the eldest daughter of Ma & Pa Larkin. The premise is of a large and unconventional family full of charms and quirks and includes a charming host of characters that keep the pace up. I recommend this series highly. The only thing that we had issue with was that the entire set is kept together and so it meant for us returning and requesting/ re-checking out the item 3. It contains 5 discs with I believe 4 hours per disc. It is more than worth it though.
