For the Goodman family, Friday Night Dinner is just like Sunday lunch: just take two days away, change the meal to dinner, and you’ve pretty much got it. Adam and his brother, Jonny, view Friday night dinner as a necessary annoyance - necessary because they get fed, and annoying because, well, they have to spend the evening with mum and dad.
Mum and Dad get a hot tub, much to the horror of Adam and Jonny, and Jim brings a date round for a disastrous dinner.
Mum's friend Val moves in and causes havoc when she finds that Dad is hiding a tin of 20-year-old meat in his shed.
Mum plans her own surprise party which backfires when Dad gets involved. Get ready for the party from hell.
Dad annoys everyone with his old ventriloquist dummy Lord Luck, while Jonny's recently dumped friend Ben comes for dinner in need of cheering up.
Adam isn't happy when he is forced to play his violin for Mum and her best friend Val, while Jonny is relishing every moment. Dad is obsessed with his old microscope.
