Because the ‘snowflakes’ out there are offended by the words ‘feck’ or ‘fecking’, it turns Mrs Browns Boys in to marmite, you either love it or hate it. So, for all the haters out there, if you can’t see the comedy genius in this light-hearted sitcom, ‘feck off’ and read something else. This is a recommendation so it is going to be biased.
Brendan O’Carroll brings his mammy to life with the supporting cast of his family and friends. This is what makes this comedy unique. The chemistry between the actors is brilliant and unlike most comedies, they are not afraid to show their cock-ups which have been left-in and un-edited :).
Yes, there is a lot of language in the show but it is projected in a way that it is comedy in itself. The language makes the show that extra bit special. And to be honest, if the language offends you, just listen to the language and bad behaviour displayed by a large percentage of the youth of today. They have learnt more feral instincts from their computer games then they would ever pick up from watching a 30 minute episode of Mrs Browns Boy’s.
Although the antics of the matriarch of the family can get a little to the bone and there are several scenes that are ad-hoc that throw the cast off – this is what a working class family is all about, love, struggles, strength and bonds.
So whether grandad ‘sucks up’ a thermometer and needs it surgically removing, Mrs Brown gets the best of some Mormons, Buster gets attacked by a frustrated Lion, the priest, Father Quinn is driven to alcoholism and Winnie is gullible to everything. These are just some of the antics that will make Mrs Browns Boys a classic for years to come
Grandad has a rectal reading that turns out bad when he ends up with the thermometer stuck up his arse.
It is discovered that Mark was promoted at work but turned the job down which causes him to get kicked out by Betty. Dermot and Maria’s wedding is nearly cancelled due to Buster being the best man whilst Agnes discovers getting a Hen Night mixed up with a funeral are not the best of errors. Rory has difficulties telling his Mammy that he is gay. Mammy feels the presence of the lord through a picture of Jesus and Father Quinn fears he is losing his faith and parishioners due to a couple of Mormons, but Mammy has a plan to rid the Mormons and intends to restore Father Quinn’s faith with a miracle at a funeral.
Will Agnes receive Grandad’s insurance money even though he is not dead? Dermot and Buster run into a lion whilst out burgling. The family try to keep an electronic baby alive whilst in preparation for the real thing. Agnes becomes ‘super-mammy’ after accidentally taking some LSD. We say goodbye to Spartacus, the family dog. Watch Agnes and Mrs Nicholson come to blows when it is mother-in-law vs mother-in-law.
After being hypnotised into a dog and chicken at a family gathering, Agnes learns that Mark, Betty and Bono are moving to Australia and finds it difficult to accept. Cathy contemplates plastic surgery until Agnes makes a mockery of it. On the 27th Anniversary of his death, Redser has disturbing news from beyond the grave for Agnes. Valentine’s Day ends with a visit from Dial-a-Dick. Cathy is convinced that one of them are adopted and a gay wedding ends up with a destroyed kitchen.
