2003-present, 4 Seasons
Mentioned in Season 2, Episode 8

Cult comedy about a wealthy family thrown into chaos after their father (and head of the family business) is thrown into jail. A stellar comic cast, enhanced by regular cameos by everyone from Liza Minelli to Henry Winkler, create absurd situations played with deadpan seriousness.

The distinctive style of humour may not be everyone's taste but it keeps bludgeoning out the laughs and, after 3 popular seasons its cast reassembled from Hollywood to do a fourth for Netflix, a decade after first coming together. Season 5 is in development now.

 Jamie's a massive fan, Hywel's not watched it (which will be the story for many shows listed in this a-z).
