A Family At War I am racing through the 52 episodes here in NZ. In a world of unreal reality TV this is like spring water in the desert. The world is at war. The family is at war with itself. Clearly made on a shoestring budget using corner-cutting methods, the program still packs amazing punch. The people are so very real and the easy soap opera options are avoided. It takes some real patience (as the war did) but that is mightily rewarded.
