Storyline

Mal's bought an RV Park with plans for a booming family-run business, but it soon turns out that they are not going to be living the dream they hoped. Before they've even settled in, Mal discovers that the park is home to a group of eccentric residents who are not exactly thrilled to meet their new owners. Meanwhile, Jen has to learn how to survive American suburbia and the kids have to navigate a US high school. With culture clashes aplenty, life in Britain soon seems even further away than they'd thought it would. But with the support of each other and their crazy new friends, they begin to learn how to live the American dream.

Really enjoying it
19 July 2018 | by mlangbeinSee all my reviews

Sure, I would probably not have watched it if it hadn't been for Philip Glenister. But I found it to be solid, warm hearted entertainment. They could well have went over the top with stereotypes and culture clash, but managed not to most of the time. Though sometimes forseeable it offers some nice twists and turns and most of all a great cast. I'm really looking forward to the second season.
