Episode 1 of 4

Sitcom with Hal Cruttenden as a house husband trying to cope with his eldest daughter Lily's first forays into love - with predictably chaotic results.

The second series of the sitcom with Hal Cruttenden finds the hapless house husband still trying to cope with his mid-life crisis and doubting his every move.

His wife Sam (Kerry Godliman) is still a highly successful business woman, his two daughters Lily and Molly continue to grow into teenagers and find their dad just a little annoying, his bitter and embittered sister Pippa (Abigail Cruttenden) has inconveniently decided to stay with Hal alongside her angry teenage son Oberon, racist neighbour Penny (Ronni Ancona) proves to be a major thorn in Hal's side and best mates Fergus (Ed Byrne) and Barry (Gavin Webster) hinder rather than help Hal's goal of finding himself.

In this first episode, eldest daughter Lily is about to introduce the family to her new hip boyfriend, Bazman, and Hal's need to re-kindle his own romantic past leads to unforeseen challenges. Hal's sister Pippa has also come to stay unexpectedly after her husband decided to experiment with his sexuality.
