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.

fantastic
7 April 2019 | by chunky15See all my reviews

We downloaded this for something to watch on our 8 hour flight to Gran Canary's and back, we absolutely loved it, loved all the characters, ok it's not spectacular, but the acting is good and it is all good clean fun, leslie jordon is fantastic to watch, he can make you laugh without even saying anything lol, Lesley and Philip are superb actors, and so are Rosie and Brenock, it must have been difficult to cast a young star that could actually sing and play instruments to suit the character. And with the addition of Paula as the mother in law was genius.The trouble is we are now left wondering if and when there is going to be a 3rd series? and with the same characters? here's hoping.
