The entire series of the dry, wry and slightly absurdist BBC sitcom starring Martin Freeman. The Robinsons aren't related to any of the famous Robinsons: Edward G, Smokey or even Anne. No, they are a run of-the-mill family from Wimbledon, South London who have 'done quite well'. All of them, that is, except the youngest: 32-year-old Ed (Freeman), the black sheep of the family, recently divorced after a disastrous marriage that lasted five-and-a-half months, doing a job that he hates and living in his aunt's flat in Bermondsey. What's gone wrong in his life? Really, how hard can it be to find a girlfriend, a decent job, a good dry-cleaners and the meaning of life? Contains six episodes.
Set in Wimbledon, South London, The Robinsons
focuses on the dysfunctional family of the title and revolves around Ed; recently divorced at 32 and living in his aunt's spare room, he's considered to be the black sheep of the family. But when the family in question includes such fun-sponges as his miserable older brother and his bickering parents, Ed's predicament doesn't seem too strange. This edgy, and sometime cringe-inducing comedy series showcases an impressive cast including Martin Freeman (The Office
) and Anna Massey.
