Like oil and water...
19 August 2019 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Katie and Alan would love to date. But there are some problems. First, they are awfully young. Second, and more importantly, Katie is an Irish Catholic and the Silvers are Jewish. So, to try to smooth out these differences, Alan suggests that the two families have a dinner together. Unfortunately, the evening turns out to be a disaster...and the differences between them are accentuated. Is there any saving the evening or working out what unites them?

This was a very awkward show to watch...and deliberately so. Watching the families in such an awkward situation is funny...but in a very dry way. Fortunately, it was also very sweet and enjoyable. Well worth seeing.
