2022-01-1101:35:34

Welcome back to YOU HAVE BEEN WATCHING, a podcast about British sitcoms.Join your hosts Tony Black & Robert Turnbull as they discuss Robert Popper's celebrated Channel Four sitcom FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER, which ran for six series between 2011-2020.Revolving around the Goodman's, a middle-class Jewish family, we see sons Adam & Jonny visit their parents Jackie & Martin each Friday night for what turns out to inevitably be a chaotic, strange or sometimes tense dinner, often dragging their weird neighbour Jim and the dog he owns but is terrified of, Wilson, into the madness.A cult show that grew into a favourite across several generations, what made the show such a success? Does it deserve to be heralded as the defining British family sitcom of the 2010s? We take a look and try to find out...Host / EditorTony BlackCo-HostRobert TurnbullSupport the We Made This podcast network on Patreon:www.patreon.com/wemadethisTwitter: @yhbwatchingWe Made This on Twitter: @wmt_networkwemadethisnetwork.comTitle music: Jumping Cricket (c) Birdies via epidemicsound.com
