I am watching tons of those recently. Is my biological clock trying to tell me something? More probably, it’s a flash in the pan and it will stop eventually. There is 2 things I want to see in a family drama:
1 – I want heartwarming and comforting. Peoples and clans who learn how to understand and appreciate each other, who help each other. A pinch of angst and tears diluted in tons of sugar, not the other way around. If a family drama makes you want to stay single or hide in a foreign country from your related ones, then it’s a fail in my book. Also, don’t forget that blood ties are not THAT important, thank you very much.
2 – I want a lot of couples in all kind of combinations. Differences of social class, ethnic origin, age gap, religious or political values, uncompatible jobs, sexual orientation: All this can be used for the smoothie. Only rule: Be as funny as you want (it’s encouraged actually) but don’t be cruel. Starting from there, no boundaries from me!
