is an American hippy who spends his days sleeping, meditating to whale music and spouting new age nonsense. Imagine the horror
of Ken and Lorna, a very conventional couple from Lichfield, when their darling daughter returns from her gap year with a ring on her finger and this dreadlocked idler on her arm.
Stand-up comedian Greg Davies (best known as the vindictive headmaster Mr Gilbert in The Inbetweeners) plays Ken and is a joy to watch: all boggling eyes and flared nostrils. Helen Baxendale is more restrained as Lorna, Outnumbered star Tyger Drew-Honey plays the petulant younger brother and US actor Andy Samberg, a former Saturday Night Live regular, is brilliantly barmy as Cuckoo. This first episode takes a while to find its feet but the final scene is a corker.
A couple from the Midlands arrive at the airport to meet their daughter, but are horrified to discover she has returned from her gap year with a new husband - a travelling hippie called Cuckoo who is now their son-in-law. First episode of the comedy, starring Greg Davies, Helen Baxendale, Andy Samberg and Tamla Kari.
