Friday Night Dinner Season 5 Is Available To Watch On Netflix This Saturday

Friday Night Dinner Season 5 Is Available To Watch On Netflix This Saturday

Friday Night Dinner season 5 is available to watch on Netflix this Saturday (1 August).

The hit Channel 4 series returned to our screens earlier this year for season 6, but if you're not quite up to speed with everything, this is your chance to dive back in with the Goodmans.

The streaming site announced the exciting news on its Facebook page.

Sharing a photograph of Jackie and the gang, Netflix wrote: "Horrible Grandma's more horrible than ever, Dad's got a ventriloquist doll, Mum's having a party, and of course there's lashings of crimble crumble.

"Friday Night Dinner s5 arrives on Netflix UK/IE this Saturday."

Earlier this year, LADbible sat down with some of the cast, who made a shocking revelation when they said that one of the series' most famous catchphrases is never actually said. Wait, what?

Nope, 'S*** on it!' and 'lovely bit of squirrel' are both safe. But brace yourself.

Tamsin Greig, who plays mum Jackie, told us: "There are catchphrases that are never in the show. You know 'Shalom Jackie' never existed - there are people screaming it at me in Sainsbury's and I wanted to say, 'What are you doing?'"

It was at this point that Tom Rosenthal, who plays youngest son Jonny, unzipped his silver puffa jacket (it'll make sense soon) to reveal the the word 'Shalom', which he'd helpfully had printed on his t-shirt.

​Friday Night Dinner Season 6 Starts Today On Channel 4

You see, the Goodmans' eccentric neighbour Jim often says 'Shalom' to the family, and regularly addresses Jackie directly by name, but the term 'Shalom Jackie' perhaps doesn't crop up as often as our endless quoting would imply.

In fact, as far as we can tell, Jim has only ever said it once, in an episode of series two called 'The Mouse'.

So, there you have it. Sorry to ruin your day.

But if you're not as au fait with the Goodmans and Jim as others, here's a quick run down on what it's all about.

Since the show started back in 2011, it's grown something of a cult following as one of Channel 4's longest running sitcoms.

Starring Greig, Paul Ritter, Simon Bird, Rosenthal and Mark Heap, the comedy follows the Goodman family and their eccentric neighbour Jim.

As the name suggests, the concept centres on a weekly Friday night meal as the family all come together for the evening, sometimes with an additional place laid at the table for a horny grandmother or bemused girlfriend.

While mum Jackie always has the best intentions for a perfect night, often chaos ensues - whether that's thanks to dad Martin and his hearing deficit, brothers Adam and Jonny putting salt in each other's water or Jim rocking up at the wrong moment.
