All six episodes from the first series of the popular BBC sitcom featuring the Porters ,who may just be an average family. Head of the household is Ben (Gary Olsen), a dedicated central-heating engineer and easy-going husband and father. Mainstay of the household is Bill (Belinda Lang), a full-time working wife and mother. In the few odd moments she gets time to think, she wonders whether life would be better if she were more like her long-time friend Rona (Julia Hills), who has had more men than Imelda Marcos has had shoes. Daughter Jenny (Georgina Cates) is a typical teenager, into boyfriends, pop music and vegetarianism, and there's David (John Pickard), the youngest member of the family and a chip off the old block. As Bill and Ben struggle with the demands of modern life, their offspring rush headlong through adolescence, increasingly embarrassed by their parents' chaotic lifestyle. Episodes comprise: 'Leader of the Pack', 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning', 'When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Go Shopping', 'Love and Marriage', 'Dirty Bowling' and 'Young at Heart'.
