| The wonderfully crazy average family.
The Porters were the iconic 90's family, dysfunctional, always at eachother's throats, but loving and caring.

2.4 Children was one of the best 90's sitcoms to come out of the UK, and there were a few good ones. The BBC attempted to replace it with My Family, it was very good, but not in the same league as this.

Super funny, bonkers, outrageous, often totally off the wall, but always with a heart. Genuinely funny from start to finish, so many great episodes, I always loved the appearance of Auntie Tina, Sandra Dickinson was hilarious, as was Liz Smith.

The cast were a joy, a real tragedy Gary Olsen passing so young. Belinda Lang was marvellous as Bill, the essential 90's mum.

Coleslaw and Thatcher have never been so funny. 9/10
