Description

Tamsin Greig and Simon Bird star in Series 1 - 4 of this quirky comedy about the gloriously idiosyncratic Goodman family and their dinners together. For the Goodman’s, Friday night dinner is just like Sunday lunch: just take two days away, add on an extra course and you've pretty much got it. Adam and his brother, Jonny, view Friday night dinner as a necessary annoyance - necessary because they get fed, and annoying because, well, they have to spend the evening with Mum and Dad. It's not that Mum and Dad aren't wonderful. They really are. But Dad slugs ketchup straight from the bottle, Mum is obsessed with Masterchef and even Grandma likes to wear her new bikini around the house.
