Storyline

Having left his home town for the bright lights of Manchester, Jack Pearson (Chris Ramsey) decides it's time to bring his new wife Sarah (Kimberley Nixon), who happens to be Jewish, home to meet his parents Joe and Pauline (Jim Moir and Gina McKee) and the rest of his family. The only trouble is, Jack's parents don't know that he's married (courtesy of a drunken binge in Las Vegas). With his mother going all out to impress with her newly acquired knowledge of Judaism, Jack's intention of keeping his marriage a secret soon hangs in the balance when a trip to the local, Swayze's, threatens to bring proceedings to a head.

How did this get commissioned?
23 November 2012 | by FairbritSee all my reviews

With all of the young writing talent out there that gets rejected by the BBC and thrown on to some slush pile, how in God's name did this piece of rubbish get commissioned and then screened on TV? There is nothing funny at all about Hebburn. The same old insulting stereotypical characters (be they Geordies or Jews)and nothing original or remotely creative in any of the story lines. Am amazed at the good reviews on here! I must be on a different planet.

Now, if you really want to see amazingly fresh and pushing-the-boundaries comedy, switch on to the third series of Him & Her (BBC3 ?) which I think is coming soon. This is astoundingly brilliant and what I believe is fantastic comedy sitcom where the characters and plot lines surprise you at every turn!
