The Brittas empire

An outstanding sitcom, don't-miss.
Seems to be only out in the UK:

Isn't that the one set in the health club? The kids like Chris Barrie, how kid friendly is it? ( They are Red Dwarf fans)

That's the one.

Kid friendly... ? I'm not sure. I think intelligent kids will find it very funny. But some of it will probably go ever most kids' heads.
Also, occasionally it can be a bit brutal, for example, a trained eagle gets drugged by accident, falls to his death, and is then used as a club by the hysterical owner on Mr. Brittas, who then is smeared in blood and feathers. (We don't see the real violence to the eagle, of course, that's off-screen, we only see Brittas covered in blood later.)
