Welcome to the Family

‘Quirky’ and ‘Absurd’ is how Netflix have categorised this family sitcom series and the trailer certainly portrays that. A single mother covers up the death of her estranged father, with the help of his wife, after learning that they have been excluded from his inheritance although this narrative appears to have been forgotten in the trailer which seems to show only a madcap family dealing with random events. Check out the trailer below and if you watch the series, let us know your thoughts.

Based on Japanese Anime of the same name.
