Storyline

Back in Very Small Business finds Don Angel (introduced in the 2008 series Very Small Business) at the helm of the World Wide Business Group where he and his business partner, Ray, have found success in their 'Don's Dirty Dog Wash' franchise. Encompassing five other small businesses, the WWBG is staffed by an ethnically diverse, gender fluid, psychologically fragile menagerie, all hired on government subsidies. While Don enjoys the spoils of his burgeoning empire, he continues to be plagued by the consequences of both his morally questionable business practises and his delinquent emotional life.

Great modern Aussie Comedy
27 October 2018 | by mikeyboy26See all my reviews

This is a modern Australian comedy gem. Following the very funny 2008 Season of Very Small Business, "Back in" builds on the wonderful charterers and delivers some interesting new ones. In addition to its wonderful humour this show has plenty of pathos injected into its narrative. In the original season, Wayne Hope's Character Don Angel in his desperate attempt to succeed in business has totally failed his children ( and marriage) to the point of child abuse. Cleverly in "Back In" we see the development of his daughter now a 20 something millennial who now works for Don and is every bit as deceitful, duplicitous and obsessed with the business as Don is. You suspect all in the hope of dads approval. The son Alex with very little interest in the business (and anything else save maybe a music career ) is a total disappointment to Don. Somehow the show is able to deliver humour every episode despite this backdrop. Kim Gyngell's poignant character Ray form the first season is a little happier but has his now transitioning Son work for the company. Brilliant! Look i really love this sort of real and relatable Australian comedy ( like Upper Middle Bogan) and to the reviewer who called Back in very Small Business a "A Rake wanna be", well Rake should have quit while it was ahead at the end of season 3. (and season 5 was unwatchable!) At least this Back Very small Business was as solid as the the first season and may still have some life in it for season 3 by 2028!
