Frank Woodley stars as the chaotic and accident-prone father of eight-year-old Ollie. Recently divorced, his ex-wife, Em, couldn't live amongst the chaos, but Woodley secretly hopes that one day he'll win her back - and there is nothing he won't do to get his family together again. But with Em's new boyfriend Greg on the scene, it's not going to be easy.
Refreshing, charming - a lovely nod to buster Keaton & Charlie Chaplin. It's so great to see something on TV that is without guile and violence - well malicious violence! It is beautifully realized with appropriate and restrained images that allow Woodley to shine. Very clever and charming. Well done ABC for not doing the same old cop show, family gangster or law show. Justine is perfect as his foil, and his daughter is a delightful combination Of wisdom, mischievousness & love for her hapless dad. The sets & design is quaint and clever. The whole series has been made with affection & passion. The music is also a nostalgic nod to silent cinema & French mime.
