I remember seeing this on the BBC a few years ago and loving it. I can't believe it wasn't a hit, as it was one of the best shows I'd seen in ages.
It's about an average Australian family. The husband is reaching retirement age and is dreading it. Since it aired years ago I haven't seen it again, and there was no DVD or VHS release, so It's hard to remember enough to give it a decent review. I remember the best scenes were around the table at the husband's workplace, where him and his workmates would play cards and talk nonsense. Hilarious stuff.
Overall it was a very funny show and should have run for more than one season. So if you ever get the chance to see it, see it, you won't be disappointed.
