Storyline

Mal's bought an RV Park with plans for a booming family-run business, but it soon turns out that they are not going to be living the dream they hoped. Before they've even settled in, Mal discovers that the park is home to a group of eccentric residents who are not exactly thrilled to meet their new owners. Meanwhile, Jen has to learn how to survive American suburbia and the kids have to navigate a US high school. With culture clashes aplenty, life in Britain soon seems even further away than they'd thought it would. But with the support of each other and their crazy new friends, they begin to learn how to live the American dream.

Fun to Watch
16 May 2019 | by brenstocktonSee all my reviews

I love the take on Americans in an RV park in the south. To me, the Americans are spot on. And I especially love that the Brits don't take any guff, stand up for themselves, and make themselves right at home. I've only seen three episodes but anticipate much pleasure watching this short series. What I hope to see in future episodes: the Americans learn from the Brits, the Brits find success and happiness, and everyone ends up being just as quirky as possible. Leslie Jordan shines among the Americans cast. Although I'm not as familar with the British cast members, I've added them to my list of actors to look for when checking out Acorn and BritBox.
