Product Description

Eccentric relations, bizarre behaviour, cringing embarrassment...It’s just a family tradition.

Twenty-something brothers Adam and Jonny return to the family home each week for a Jewish Friday night dinner of soup, chicken and crumble – plus massive side-orders of wind-ups and bickering. With a Masterchef-obsessed Mum; Dad eating from the rubbish bin; Grandma wearing her new bikini around the house, and Jim the neighbour who’s terrified of his own dog, it’s a feat of endurance. And that’s before the concerns about Jonny’s ‘made-up’ girlfriend and Dad’s non-stop requests for Adam to find a “female” on the Internet. Of course, every family has its foibles, its rituals and its eccentricities. It’s just that the Goodmans have made something of an art form of theirs…

"Brilliantly funny" Heat
"Superb stuff" Guardian
"Hits the jackpot of comedy every time" Mail on Sunday

5.0 out of 5 stars Side splitting humor! Too, too much! 5 Oct 2011
By Jay Dee
Format:DVD
First, let me say I am a 61-year-old American woman, probably not the typical viewer for this show. My family has never, ever heard me laugh the way I do when I watch Friday Night Dinner. I usually watch it in my bedroom, and once it starts, my husband peeks in the door and shakes his head hopelessly. My 21-year-old daughter inevitably comes and slams my bedroom door shut because, yes, I lose my ever loving mind laughing, and I am sure my neighbors can hear me. Humor is a highly individual thing; it's fascinating, really, to think about what makes someone guffaw and another person just smile. This show has hit my funny bone like nothing else ever has. I love The Office (British and American versions), but it doesn't make me laugh like this.

Every character in this program (or should I say "programme"?), is top notch. I have to say the mother is my favorite, though. She is right on point with her gestures and facial expressions. The father is a disgusting scream! The boys are so infantile and immature that they take me back to the days with my sisters and our irreverent humor. I never get tired of the "salt in the water" prank. I'd say the level of the humor is very low on the intelligence scale, which makes it all the more funny, for some reason. I think the success, though, is due to its character driven nature. I will dearly miss those characters when the show ends.

All I can say is, please, keep those episodes coming! I am sure that years have been added to my life with all the endorphins that squirt into my veins with every silly antic. British humor is definitely the best. And yes, it does transfer very well!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great TV comedy/ 10 April 2011
Format:DVD
This is a great TV show. i stumbled onto it one night midway through an episode not having any prior knowledge of it. The set up is simple - the family have a dinner together every Friday night. Every episode the brilliantly weird neighbour Jim knocks at the door with a poor excuse to talk to the mother - in fear of his ever present alsation Wilson. The 2 sons (late teens early twenties) constantly take the mickey out of and prank each other. The mum is house proud and a Masterchef fan and the father, partly deaf, is, well, pretty odd too and prone to eating out of the bin. As you watch more of the episodes you'll notice recurring themes - eg the father saying "lovely squirrel tonight Jackie" at the evenings latest food offering. Its a feelgood show and I can imagine it having its detractors. But then some people lambasted Peepshow when it started but its audience has remained loyal. The characters are really strong, the pace fast and the writing and comedy are top quality. To say the set up is the same every week and to judge it on this would be to miss the point. We get to love the characters because of this and the simplicity of the set up enables some hilarious situations to ensue. It might not be to everyones taste but then good comedy can rarely be all things to all people. At the very least check it out. If it strikes a note with you you'll be watching it again and again and wanting to tell others about how good it is. A creative and funny comedy with lovingly drawn characters. 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go to your room! 27 April 2011
By Dr S H
Format:DVD
I'm a middle aged man who enjoyed the Inbetweeners The Inbetweeners - Series 1-3 - Complete [DVD]but not necessarily to be watched in a family setting. This new series however, is relaxed "Inbetweeners" type comedy which can be watched with your grandma.
And talking about grandma, Episode 3, where Grandma visits, argues with her grown up daughter in front of her grown up children and husband, and then tries to send her to her room - well to me those few minutes were on a par with "Don't mention the war - I did once but I think I got away with it".
Though formulaic, with the same very strange neighbour who obviously fancies mum and is so terrified of his own dog that he has to fill him with alcohol, the adult brothers who love each other but try to poison each other every week and the strange father who prefers to wear as little as possible, this short series had me and my family in stitches and we now go round at home and at work telling everyone to "Go to your room"!
Can't wait for the next series.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't stop watching it! 5 Nov 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After spending almost a year as a pre-order on Amazon, series one was release on DVD just as series 2 was being shown on Channel 4. What it meant was a double helping of hilarious teenage/adult humour at my disposal.

If you love The Inbetweeners and Fresh Meat, then this is definitely for you.

I love the dad. He is hilarious!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 22 Oct 2012
Format:DVD
This is one of my favourite sitcoms of the moment. There's nothing really 'Jewish' about it, even though that's how the early publicity promoted the show (wrongly in my opinion), but it does use the excuse of a regular Friday night dinner to bring the characters together each episode for another storyline. Not much happens by the way of plot, but I'm happy with that because the main humour comes from the characters - the hapless father, the fussy mother, the two childish sons and the eccentric neighbour - and the real delight is the acting, which is consistently excellent. Mark Heap, as the permanantly befuddled but vaguely creepy outsider Jim, is especially amusing, turning what are often the briefest of scenes and exchanges into memorably funny little highlights of each episode. Maybe some will demand more action and less silliness but then, if that's the case, they need a quite different kind of sitcom. This playful, mischievous, spirited comedy just makes me laugh, often out loud, and that makes me prize it greatly.
