Friday Night Dinner

Series Summary
The titular mealtime is anything but normal for brothers Adam and Jonny Goodman, siblings in an eccentric Jewish family who return home each week for free eats. When they're not busy playing pranks on each other, they're breaking bread with their parents: father Martin likes to stroll around shirtless and collect science magazines, while mom Jackie is obsessed with "MasterChef" and tries her best to inject an air of normalcy into the insanity that always ensues. And of course, supper just wouldn't be the same without an appearance from Jim, a creepy neighbor whose frequent visits elevate him to "stalker" status.

  • Dinner isn't quite ready to take its place in the Brit-com hall of fame, but it's good for a laugh or three. show more

  • It's a credit to Popper that the running gags seem fresh and funny every time, and that he can mine so much humor from a weekly dinner. But as long as he does, I'll have the table set. show more

  • Even with the cross-pond cultural differences, young adults who are perennially baffled by their aging boomer parents will feel right at home here. show more
