FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER
8.25PM, SATURDAY, BBC FIRST
SHOWS such as Friday Night Dinner (which returns this week for season five) and Life In Pieces always make me feel a little bit better about my own family’s dysfunction – as well as the laughs that come from it. For those who haven’t locked onto this one, it’s easy to pick up from here: the Goodman family’s adult sons Adam and Jonny reluctantly come home to visit their parents Jackie and Martin each week. In the season return, the parents have taken delivery of a hot tub and are planning a steamy night of family fun in it.
