What is Worst Week TV series all about?
Well basically, its about this man named Sam Briggs who’s girlfriend, Mel Clayton was pregnant out of wedlock. They are planing to get married but there was just one obstacle: Mel’s family. Being a traditional family, the Clayton’s wouldn’t appreciate that Sam had made Mel pregnant. And it doesn’t help that Sam is extremely nervous when it’s about the Claytons which will result in accidents and disaster towards the Claytons whenever Sam is around.
Was there anything you thought was wrong with the series?
Actually, there is. The series is called Worst Week so you would expect that it happened in a week but it didn’t. It would be fine if it was in a couple of weeks but events sometimes happen on random days, not week. Totally contradicts the title but don’t judge a book by its cover. Another thing is that the accidents that happened around Sam, while is highly believable would be highly improbable. Oppose me all you can but I don’t think that someone would have that much bad luck.
Did you think Worst Week was funny?
Before watching the series, I did check whether or not it would be rewarding to watch Worst Week. Some say that it was the best of the year but some say it was a total rip-off of the British series The Worst Week of My Life. Rip-off or not, it was hilarious. I laughed the whole time because Sam was so careless and people weren’t showing signs of anger. They were mad but they sure as hell didn’t show it. Maybe that’s why I thought it was so funny, action and reaction of the characters.
If you were Dick Clayton, would you stand Sam and keep him in under the same roof?
If I were Dick? Mel is my daughter and he loves Sam so I would keep him. But then again, if keeping him under the same roof might get me killed, he can get the hell out of my house. For all I know, stopping Sam and Mel from marrying and living under one roof would save Mel’s baby. But again, that’s just me. The show is finished and it looked obvious that Dick had warmed to Sam at the end despite his being a bad luck magnet.
Worst Week never had a second season but if it were you to decide, would you like it to continue?
I have seen shows like this, funny shows being misjudged and got cancelled for ratings reasons. Another show who had the same fate was Better Off Ted who got hacked after two seasons. Worst Week seemed to end beautifully but there are more weeks that could be exploited in Sam and Mel’s life. The baby’s first birthday, maybe a funeral of a Claytons and many more. To me, Worst Week had a good concept that it borrowed from a British show and it could be continued, it could be exploited to be on its own feet. But it didn’t get the chance and we will never see Sam in tragic action again. What a waste of a great idea.
