The Robinsons

Show Summary

Ed Robinson (The Office’s Martin Freeman) works in re-insurance until his colleague (and secret lover) is promoted and fires him. He realises that re-insurance is not where his passions lie and, after being asked “Tell us about yourself” and being unable to come up with an answer (“Well, I’m medium height, brown hair ...), decides to reasses his life. Ed’s sister, Victoria (Abigail Cruttenden), is struggling to find a man to meet her exceedingly high standards. One is jettisoned because he sniffs too much. Another because he reminds her of her father (causing her to scream in horror each time they attempt to have sex). Their time-management consultant brother George (Hugh Bonneville) is a competitive control freak, struggling to keep his wife happy and his son, Albert, educationally stimulated. Their parents are constantly - and entertainingly - at each other’s throats.

  • The most British show on TV.

    8.7
    The Robinsons is a show about an average British family, and focuses mainly about Ed, the youngest son. Throughout the show he keep comparing himself to the more successful (and sometimes, less successful) members of his family. I find it very amusing, especially when I normally find British shows dull and boring to tears. It is my favorite BBC show. It has only 6 episodes, but each one is cleverly plotted and not a bit boring! I'm very surprised it's not a bigger success, because I think it's a great comedy show. Too bad it wasn't continued. It had a great potential.moreless

    "The Robinsons" is a show about the british family, The Robinsons (duh!). It's about Ed Robinson and how he lives with his family's problems and daily lives.

    The show is not enough in 30 miutes and should be extended because it's a funny favorite. This is the kind of family that is original and not boring and pirated like According to Jim
