The Family – No Sexy Times In The Cardamone Household
It would appear that as much as children don’t like the idea of their parents having sex nor to do parents like the idea of their children doing it either.
The Family this week was a much better with showcasing issues that most families face.
Last week the show lived up to this family is “nothing remarkable” tagline with banal conversations and tedious plot lines. In fact I had wondered whether SBS has selected the Cardamones so their viewer could congratulate themselves for not being like them. SBS viewers are very much the latte set, and put it this way the Cardamones are not your typical SBS fans.
This week the main plot line was the Cardamone men trying to get laid. The father was having no hope, probably because they have been married for 25 years, and there are cameras in the bedroom. Now apparently they are turned off for a few hours a night, but this is not conducive for romance.
The eldest son who is 20, had his girlfriend over to stay, but the rule in the house was they were not allowed to sleep in the same bedroom. Now it looked like he did not sneak, but again that could have been because of the cameras. The girlfriend Jess’s body language looked like she was not really into him so she was not going to encourage him to break the rules.
And there was no enthusiasm when he was trying to lock her in for a shag at her house. But then maybe she was turned off after she waxed off his chest and abdomen hair. Why are Gen Y’s so hair phobic?
The other romance was a sweet one between the 18 year old son, and his new girlfriend Marlana. If there is any link between brain cancer and mobile phone use, he will have it after hours of conversation with her late at night. Also they were sweet with each other when she came over for a gathering at his place. She knew how to get on the mums good side by giving her a box of chocolates. The dad looked vaguely bemused by this.
However these girls need to beware, these boys are not going to be great catches as their mother waits on them hand and foot. Yet to see one step foot in the kitchen to wash or wipe up. The mum is doing no one any favours by doing this.
