Mrs Brown’s Boys returns to BBC One with new series

The return of Mrs Brown’s Boys sparked outrage among viewers on Friday night, with many taking to Twitter to issue the same complaint.

The BBC comedy has made its official comeback with four brand-new episodes after its 10-year hiatus.

The first instalment saw Agnes Brown (played by Brenda O’Carroll) feeling down in the dumps when the house was a mess and she couldn’t get any sleep.

It is the first series to be made since 2013, as only Christmas specials have aired ever since.

However, just minutes into the programme, some fans claimed to “switch off” with many picking faults with the quality of the lighting and camera angles.

Other fans branded the show “painful”, while others said they were “bored” while watching.

Taking to Twitter, @neil_gjohnson complained: “Just watched 5 minutes of #mrsbrownsboys I’d like to apologise to everyone I know for this lapse in common sense, and to my TV, I’m so sorry. Won’t happen again.” (sic)

@BuryLass144 fumed: “I give it a go every new series hoping for an improvement, sadly it’s going to be switched OFF!! It’s awful, what happened ?? #MrsBrownsBoys.” (sic)

While @BeachTimeClaire added: “Ten minutes into the new series of #MrsBrownsBoys and I’m already wondering why I’m watching it!!! Somethings you have to accept are dead and can’t be resuscitated! Mrs Brown’s Boys is one of them!” (sic)

“#MrsBrownsBoys ironic transmitting such a grainy picture in HD,” @OliReading shared.

@mm15007 echoed: “Feels like 2003 based on the picture on the TV #mrsbrownsboys.”

@RossG_kiernan went on to ask: “What is with the camera/ lighting #mrsbrownsboys.”

Despite the criticism, some viewers were thrilled to see the show’s return, with @RossG_kiernan tweeting: “Great to have #mrsbrownsboys back after the ten-year wait.” (sic)

When speaking about the show’s return, Brendan said in a statement: “This mini-series was actually planned for 2021.

“Having been thwarted twice, firstly by Covid-19 and then by a post-Covid shortage of studios, it’s fantastic to, at last, have the chance to make it happen.

“Fasten your seatbelts and hold onto your hats!”

Josh Cole, Head of Comedy, BBC Studios, and Steven Canny, Executive Producer said in a joint statement: “There’s no one quite like Mrs. Brown.

“An absolute force of outrageous wit and slapstick that has audiences hooked and belly-laughing. It’s great to be back.”

Mrs Brown’s Boys is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
