Home Sweet Home

1 9 8 1 (Australia)
24 x 30 minute episodes

Melbourne taxi driver Enzo Pacelli (John Bluthal) – an Italian immigrant – is determined to keep his old country’s traditions alive, although his children are true blue Aussies.

This awful and remarkably unfunny sitcom from the Australian ABC was a dreary waste of public money. A talented cast was wasted, and not even John Bluthal – an actor with a deserved international reputation – could make it bearable.

ABC executives were obviously so delighted with the lack of interest in the show when it was first screened that they rushed, whooping with glee, into a second series.
