Ok – House Husbands – here is my review! I LIKED IT! I laughed a lot and am sure that any parent of a child in kindergarten will love it – or any parent for that matter. But for hitting the demo’s – very unsure. Don’t get we wrong – it’s good. It’s definitely aimed at the 25- 54 year old demo that Nine are aiming for watching it. That’s their aim – and they have nailed it!
Also not sure of the Sunday 8.30pm timeslot. I was thinking more of a weekday at 7.30pm for a Rafters feeling show, but due to Big Brother they can’t. The show starts off brilliantly and even has a Keanu Reeves “Speed” inspired chase. Unfortunately for me there are many flaws in legal and medical facts, yet probably won’t affect the average viewer. Starting out as a comedy and going into almost heavy drama, all things aside, it is GREAT to see a show with such diversity, keeping up with modern times and representing the average community.
The highlights are the Underbelly stars Firass Dirani (charming) and Gyton Grantley (so loveable) – warm, ferociously real, touching and I must say I enjoyed. It starts off better than it ends but is worth a go in my opinion. House Husbands airs on Sundays at 8.30pm on Nine.
