Want to Watch Something Without Commercials?
Weather cold and wet right now? Read all your books and got a quiet hour to relax … what sort of television do you like? These days you can watch most things from your devise with no commercials and wherever you have a net connection.

This is a very hilarious series about a Lebanese-Australian family who buy a mansion in an exclusive area with snobby neighbours. Nothing is sacred in this series from relationships, jokes, family and recipes. Where did their wealth come from? What happened to their snobby neighbours? Social media and interracial relationships are included in the mix. Guaranteed you will laugh out loud.
