Friday Night Dinner


Series 2 - Episode 1 Buggy



We sit down at the dinner table with the chaotic Goodman family as Robert Popper’s genial autobiographical comedy returns for a second series. Dad, the fantastically lugubrious Paul Ritter, is once again embarrassingly shirtless (“I’m bloody boiling” is his constant lament) as warring siblings Adam and Jonny (Simon Bird and Tom Rosenthal) start brawling like toddlers the minute they set foot in their childhood home. Mum Jackie (Tamsin Greig) can do little except look pained while shouting for order above the mayhem.

Mark Heap as weirdly obtuse neighbour Jim lifts us out of broad farce when he becomes obsessed by Adam’s childhood fluffy bunny.


Robert Popper's low-key comedy returns with Jonny in a foul mood, as he discovers a secret betrayal while reading Adam's childhood diary - and vows to get revenge. Mum struggles to keep the peace as the brothers' feud rages through the house , while Dad's inability to control his sneezing causes further chaos. Starring Simon Bird, Tom Rosenthal, Tamsin Greig and Paul Ritter.
