Friday Night Dinner
1 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

my Mrs put me on to this saying that she thought I'd love it. Well she was right - we have just watched the whole 3 series on 4OD catchup. Its the only recent TV comedy that you get right into the characters straight away. The initial draw to watching it for many would be simon Bird playing a slightly more grown up version of the kid he plays in The Inbetweeners. I need to say that the other characters are even stronger, especially his Mum and Dad and their VERY weird next door neighbor Jim and his dog Wilson. Can honestly say this is as more enjoyable than The Inbetweeners and only slightly off Only Fools and Horses in my humble opinion. PLEASE C4 AGREE TO A FOURTH SERIES!!!!!
