TV review: The Tuckers, episode 2

This is not a bad show and the second episode is more out-and-out funnier than the first. It could just do with more of an original twist.

TV review: The Tuckers, BBC One Wales

Some critics have suggested that the sitcom is a negative portrayal of working class Welsh valley stereotypes. I don't have a problem with that (though of course I'm not from the Welsh valleys). I'd have just liked it to have been funnier.

TV review: The Tuckers Series 1 Episode 1

King Gary contained portrayals of working class characters that suffered from a surfeit of toxic masculinity and unfortunately so does this, I'm sure it's a coincidence they both went out on the same night and were presumably commissioned at different times and by different people, but it's unpleasant to see such a thing twice on the same evening. With The Tuckers you have two fathers who treat their sons appallingly, as Glyns Dad deliberately wants his son to be miserable and so tells his granddaughter to steal from him, while Glyn himself calls Bobby a pussy for apologising for punching Roberto, it's ugly, ugly stuff and something I found painfully unfunny.
