Good show
29 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am American and resent the myth that all British shows are better than all American shows. Yeah, because In with the Flynns is better than Arrested Development. That makes so much sense. NOT! As a matter of fact, I don't think there is a single show better than Arrested Development. In with the Flynns is much worse than Grounded for Life, the show it was based on.

I found out about Friday Night Dinner when I heard about the American remake (which to my surprise, didn't get picked up). So I decided to watch the British version in anticipation. The show is hilarious. Tasmin Greig (Episodes) delivers, as the immature mother. Simon Bird (The Inbetweeners) and Mark Heap (Stressed Eric) are also hilarious, as the oldest son and creepy neighbor respectively. Paul Ritter is outstanding as the deaf father, and I plan on checking out his previous show Pulling. Rounding out the cast is newcomer Will Rosenthal, as the younger song. He shows a lot of promise, proving that you can make a good show with fresh meat. The show is about a Jewish family, and their insane shabbat dinners. There are tons of pranks, lies, and whatnot. Of course this is always played for laughs (without a laugh track!). Great show, recommended to all (British and American, and whatever else).
