One person wrote: “I tried The Larkins again, hoping it would be better than the first episode, and needless to say I won’t watch it again.”
Another said, “Well, I thought I’d give it a try again, but no, that’s still nonsense, so I’ve turned it off #TheLarkins.”
A third added: ‘This is the second and final episode of The Larkins for me. I tried but nothing was on the original and I didn’t laugh once.
A fourth wrote: “I have a funny feeling, wouldn’t there be a second series of this horrific show?”
Reaction: The series has left some fans unimpressed – saying they won’t continue watching the show after trying it again yesterday.
From government officials and arrogant second homeowners to aggressive urban developers, Larkins never take any threats to their idyllic way of life lying around.
But when Cedric Charlie Charlton (performed by Steven Toke) arrives to check on their taxes, things look grim for the family.
Distracted by the beautiful Mariette, Charlie quickly discovers that he has a romantic rival in the form of the handsome and mysterious Tom Fisher (Stephen Hagan).
Mariette, wanting to travel to France, agreed to stay for the summer and with the arrival of Charlie and Tom her heart seemed to be turning in many directions.

However, not all reactions were negative for the show’s second episode, with some saying they “laughed all the way”.
“I think we can learn a lot from a family like this,” Bradley Walsh recently told Weekend magazine.
“I think the pandemic has made people realize how much they miss the people in their lives and want to stop racing and spend more time with their family.”
For Joanna Scanlan, as Ma Larkin, who loves nothing more than to feed her bosom of six and everyone else in the village, The Larkins reminds us that fun doesn’t need to be preceded by the word “guilty.”

“I hate that misspelled phrase, because we don’t aim to spend our lives on a constant treadmill,” she says. We live in a society that makes it very difficult to feel satisfied with enjoying life.
The Larkins work hard—one episode shows Pop doesn’t stop all day—but they also know how to relax.
They know that fun can be found in good company, a nice drink and meal, a little cuddle or just being with the people you love. They are having fun wherever they can and I hope viewers will see the importance of that.
