Drama 8.30pm, Nine

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Sunday Highlights - – DS

Unashamedl­y tak­ing ad­van­tage of a Fa­ther’s Day launch, Nine’s lat­est drama of­fer­ing is what hap­pens when the boys are left in charge.

This quirky drama has Justin ( Fi­rass Di­rani), Kane ( Gy­ton Grant­ley), Mark ( Rhys Mul­doon) and Lewis ( Gary Sweet) – who have all ended up grap­pling with their off­spring – meet­ing on the school run. That in it­self ends up prob­lem­atic in this first episode: think a stolen school bus and a miss­ing deputy prin­ci­pal.

On the sur­face it might all seem a lit­tle twee, but delve deeper into the four dads and there are some in­escapable and touch­ing truths, off­set with hu­mour which makes it ut­terly dis­arm­ing. Di­rani’s Justin, whose AFL bad boy ways have cost him his wife and fam­ily, is em­broiled in a cus­tody bat­tle as he tries to re­gain con­trol of his life. And Sweet’s Lewis is as ex­as­per­at­ing as he is charm­ing.
