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.

I Tried To Like It Too
24 January 2019 | by wabby-30281See all my reviews

I love British shows and humour. I watch more of them than from any other source. I also lived in Florida for 20 years. So, this is the show for me, right? It is awful. I only wish I had given up after 30 minutes, as someone else did, instead of waiting until now.
