The Durrells Reviews & Ratings

Sundays, 8:00 PM ET on PBS

60 minutes

The series begins in 1935, when Louisa Durrell, whose life had fallen apart, decides to move from Bournemouth to the Greek island of Corfu. Her husband has died some years earlier and she has financial problems, when she suddenly announces that she and her four children will move to the island. A Homeric battle ensues as the family adapt to life on the island, especially when they discover that Corfu does not even have electricity at that time. But it is cheap, an earthly paradise and the Durrell family make the big step that will change their lives.

This is just a delight. Mts. Durrells is a fierce Mother, and as all fierce Mother's do, she wants what's best for her children. The opening sets the tone for the series as she defends her youngest against a clueless Headmaster that's "disciplined" her youngest. And then they're in Greece and their adventures begin.

A dysfunctional British family moves to Greece only to learn that they can't solve their issues, but at least they are together and it isn't raining. Every character's life is washed over by intrigue and just the right balance of drama and comedy, so every episode will keep you on your toes and yearn for more. Enjoy the Greek island of Corfu with all it has to offer: wildlife, beaches, love and loss.

The plot is not very grasping, quite the opposite. I don't see any comedy in watching the family struggle to simply survive, having almost nothing to eat etc. Not much comedy in general (don't know why it's characterised as one on imdb). If you like animals, you probably won't enjoy this show. If you are sensitive please do not read further, just don't watch it.

I wish there was an information about it before I've watched it, that's why I will write this. If you are a parent you might find it helpful as well. One of the characters, described by his mom as a 'psychopath' shoots everything that moves and cuts a bunny into pieces. Other than that an old lady puts puppies in the sack with intention of burying them alive. At the end she gets interrupted and puppies are saved but nevertheless - it's grim. That happens just in the two first episodes. I stopped watching after this. In my opinion it's not worth the time.

A refreshing lively family drama is played out on Corfu after a nearly broke family more there. Great acting from all the characters. Scenery is wonderful. I think I will enjoy watching how this family drama plays out.
