Series Three

Series 2 follows on from the widely well recieved first series, and is the second series. It began on the 31 August 2001 and ended on the 30 November 2001. The series continues to follow the antics of the highly disfunctional Harper family.


Nick continues to try new jobs such as: employment agency member, tour guide, dental assistant, chef, sleep deprivation challenge, selling his organs online, being a sperm doner and a stunt display team member. Meanwhile Janey becomes a waitress in Soho, but gets sacked as she only took the job to be descovered by a film company. Michael is gifted at school, so Ben and Susan get him a new computer, he also is standing in the school election as a conservative (much to Ben's annoyance). Janey has a French exchange girl come over, just so she can get a holiday in France (Ben thinks she fancies him). She also gives some boys' dates in exchange for tutoring (Ben accidentely calls her a prostitute), and she gains a new boyfriend "Stupid" Brian (who is very dim-witted). Grace, Susans mother appears for the first time (saying she is dying, again) and tells Janey that her Mother (Grace's mother) was a prostitute. This series adds to the comedy by having death and a bit of romance thrown into the mix.
