Overall, Great show and brilliant content and writing
29 August 2016 | by tomstartupSee all my reviews

I honestly can't believe some people have given this show a bad review. Friday Night Dinner is one of the few British sitcoms that have actual modern humour. Most of the time, my family end up getting into arguments, but if there's one thing that'll bring us together for a laugh, its Robert Popper's brilliantly created and well thought out comedy that although maybe isn't always appropriate for young children, its something that the whole family can enjoy no matter what area of comedy they may have interests in! I honestly really like the religious twist to it, it helps you to create an image of what a Jewish dinner is NOT like, which is good because thats what good comedy should be able to do. The cast was so well thought out too, Simon Bird and Tom Rosenthal are both young and energetic actors during their acting work together which really makes me think that they are actually brothers. Tamsin Greig and Paul Ritter also seem to make the perfect comedy on-screen match which gives a whole new family experience to the show. And not to mention Mark Heap's brilliant skills as an actor playing that annoying and irritating neighbor that we all know and well... hate. By far, Jim Bell (Mark Heap) is my favorite character in the show due to his hilarious actions and speech methods. I also do love how the show explores both side of the families.
