Storyline

When high-flying businesswoman Jenny Pope is fired for punching a colleague, and, on the same day discovers that her unemployed husband Nick has squandered their life savings on an ill-conceived business scheme they, and their teenage children Sam and Becky, are forced to make a difficult decision. They have no choice but to move from London to the north and live with Jenny's parents Len and Alma. They see it as a temporary measure. But life won't prove to be that simple... Parents is a comedy about three generations of family living under one roof. Len and Alma, who thought they were free of children. Jenny and Nick, who thought they were free of parents. Sam and Becky, who now have to deal with two sets of parents with very different views on bringing up kids. It's a fast paced, laugh out loud comedy about a family at love and war. Written by Anonymous

Tom Conti's brilliant, but okay show.
12 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

I chose to watch this show because it has two actors out of Miranda (Sally Phillips & Tom Conti) and I was curious to see them in new roles. The premise seems a good one and it tries, but somehow fails. Tom steals every scene he's in, but Sally's character is unsympathetic, as is her dumb husband. The children were underused, but easy to like. The humour was in the main forced or didn't quite work. They're aiming for heartwarming and quirky, but compared to "Miranda" or "Starlings", it falls far short. If the leads are repellent, the show is not going to live up to potential. (Nothing against Sally. She's a good actress in a poor role.) I will continue watching for sake of the supporting characters, but would not buy on DVD.
