When Jenny Pope (Sally Phillips) loses her job, house and savings after getting ‚punchy‚ with a colleague, she and her family are forced to move back in with her parents Len (Tom Conti) and Alma (Susie Blake). Along for the upheaval are hubby Nick (Darren Strange), a struggling, self-proclaimed entrepreneur, and kids Sam and Becky. Three generations living under the same roof isn‚t ideal, but, beneath the spats and squabbles, are some home truths. One, that your parents are never too old to completely, utterly annoy you. And two, that you‚re never too old to learn from them.

I bought this DVD on the strength of the usually fabulous Sally Phillips and some good reviews on Amazon. Have to say I'm pretty disappointed. Its mediocre and the characterizations are typical sit-com at its worst. Despite the good cast (including Tom Conti and Susie Blake) its really not very funny and I can't imagine why anyone commissioned it. This will be going to the charity shop I'm afraid.

Huge Sally Phillips fan, but really, can pretty much see why Sky didn't commission Season 2 of this one. Phillips excels in playing characters who, were you to meet them, you'd probably run a mile from, and she does the same here - her character is snobbish, deceitful, scared, lets her daughter take the rap for her behaviour etc. But it's by no means Phillips who drops the ball here. To some extent, the writing is over-stretched, delivering oddness with the faint whiff of desperation about it, in the hope to raise a titter from the audience. Titters there are, too - but fully committed laughs, sadly few.

I was surprised to find they are not making a new series. A great cast with Susie Blake and Tom Conti as the Parents are very funny.
With Sally Phillips stuck in the middle with a hapless husband.

I don't know why this show is getting so many bad reviews! I am watching it on Sky's Now TV, and definitely plan to buy the DVD. It's a cute little comedy, and I love Sally Phillips' character! Sure, the laughs are not continuous, mile-a-minute in their delivery, but when you do laugh, it's genuine.

This show reminds me of a few other shows that I really like, some of which, sadly, were also cancelled; Being Eileen, Jam and Jerusalem (aka Clatterford), etc.

Hopefully Sky will recommission this series if they receive enough positive feedback!
