Will anyone else be watching?
I don't watch much of My Family anymore, but the Christmas specials are always quite good.

I'll be watching, but only as I watch every year, I haven't enjoyed a Christmas special since the hotel one.

Last year's special was terrible with the stupid plot set in 2039. Hopefully this year its set in 2010 and a bit funnier.

It's funny how the Christmas specials are normally better than the series, well from series 5 onwards.

I stopped watching after Siobhan Hayes left. She was lovely!
I HATED the way they made her leave. It wasn't how I'd see Abi leave. It was very unrealistic and up intill that episode Abi hadn't shown a the massive faith she apparently had in her last episode.

I do not think Christmas Specials are as good in general anymore. I think this has been the case since 2000 onwards.

That one really surprised me. It was very good. Last year's was awful though.

Tonight's show is two episodes joined together as one, and I think they were recorded in 2009!

Don't forget though "we're not making anymore after this... until the next series".

Again. I think the 2008 one was like that, well it certainly seemed like it.

I forgot about this, ended up watching Corrie instead. Might catch up on iplayer later, if it's worth it.

The epitome of a show that has jumped the shark, I think. (Several years ago).

I haven't seen tonight's episode yet, but I agree it hasn't been at it's best for awhile, although the beginning of the last series was good and I thought it had really turned a corner, however that only lasted about 2/3 episode.

That's what I thought, possibly planned to be scheduled in two half hour episodes? But instead, it was a disjointed mess.

I agree, there were two distinct plots that were entirely separate. Haven't they done this before, ramming two episodes together like that?

On the whole, it was watchable, but nowhere near as good as it used to be years ago.
