BBC Comedy about a family called the Harpers. Ben the bad tempered father (Robert Lindsay), Susan the loving mother (Zo?anamaker), and the kids (and extended family), deal with seemingly normal situations in a completly rediculous fashion ending always in a bad way for Ben, but hilarious veiwing for us.

I have loved this show for ages and am starting to build up my UK TV DVD collection. This is a brilliant addition, and the new seasons 8, 9 and 10 should be pretty cheap addons at a later date.

Judging by some of the reviews on Amazon, a lot of people don't like it. I think it is great though, and you can pick up the following seasons for about 5-10 each! Whole set for under £45.

Because it's unfunny rubbish made for the lcd and people object to the licence fee being wasted on stuff like this and Two Packets of Lager....

Just a guess, could be wrong.

Funnier comment than the whole series!

Comedy for the brainless.

Ok some people don't like it, but tbf alot of people must like it and watch it, otherwise 10 series wouldn't have been made.. I would to see you 2 make a better series which people like to watch if you'r going to bad mouth it.

OK so its not to your taste, but i bet a lot of the stuff you enjoy i won't like.

This sites about hot or cold deals, not about personal preference

Think it was a couple of pounds cheaper before christmas, perhaps thats why the cold votes.
Good series in my opinion - has its ups and downs though like anything, and definately needs to be put to bed (there is no need for a 10th and 11th series!), the first 3 series probably being the best.

Its a funny one this - you get those commenting above, and the critics, who absolutely HATE it with a passion. But the viewer rating figures have remained very high, hence the continuation of the series so long, proving its obviously popularity.

I heard they were using My Family in Guantanamo as part of the psychological warfare program.

And as for using ratings as a clue as to whether something is good or not, that's ridiculous! That means that X Idol, Pop Factor, I'm a Big Brother Get me out of dancing on ice are all "quality" television. Just because millions of people decide to turn off their brains and watch drivel like these programs (and My Family) doesn't make them great shows. Like the movie industry they find a dumb forumla that works keeping the masses watching and churn it out.

Never said anything about it being a "great show" due to ratings - if you read again, I said it proves their popularity.

Regardless, "quality television" is such a subjective matter that it is hardly worth bothering discussing. How about those that dislike the show simply leave this thread alone?
