"You went to church dressed as Prince!"
17 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If this quote doesn't persuade you to watch Grandma's House hopefully the following will: I found the first two episodes (as a LOT of viewers it turns out) ungainly and not quite what I thought the show would be, maybe because of the Simon Amstell's semi-comedic performance of himself, I'm still not sure. But after a two week break a I watched the third episode and it made double over with laughter a number of times BECAUSE of Simon Amstell's performance and the writing. The show's quirky, uncomfortable and pop culture based - much like all the things that Amstell did before and I loved( and that everyone decided to suddenly hate him for). It's also at times very honest and touching (and surprise surprise even more uncomfortable), with characters that are at once caricatured and hyper real and deliver lines that make you want to quote them the next day. So don't let people's sudden hatred of Simon Amstell discourage you from watching this great bit of British comedy!
