A Shabbat for the goyim....
21 January 2015 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

This " the family-based sitcom" is the most universal TV concept around. From Birmingham to Bangalore, a dom-com is a safe bet for TV executives.And although Friday Night Dinner is slightly niche given that its characters are Jewish, it still retains universality. Plus, America has a sizeable Jewish population which will help the series considerably, providing that it doesn't rely on clichés and offensive racial stereotypes.

Brilliant prose, tightly crafted script with hilarious situations, a believable family dynamic, engaging close to perfection in a comedy as I have seen. Simon Bird is clearly destined for great things. You can depend on all of the players being on screen as long as the wish to be, the don't throw away actors in British Television; they enjoy them as they age!
