What I mean by that is that you either love it, or hate it. I hate marmite. Lots of people love it. I struggle to watch a whole episode of Mrs Brown’s Boys (actually five minutes is my limit). Lots of people love it and even own box sets of it. I want to understand what it is about it that divides people into two different camps: the Mrs Brown lovers vs the Mrs Brown haters.
So I carried out a comprehensive survey. I asked people whether they either ‘love’, ‘hate’, ‘like’ or ‘dislike’ Mrs Brown’s Boys.
Here are the results:
The results seem to concur with my suspicions: Mrs Brown’s Boys is indeed the marmite of comedy. I suspect that if I carried on with my survey the split between love and hate would be even to the end.
I’ve just tried to watch an episode. I lasted 4 mins 28 seconds. I still don’t like it, a lot.
