Raised by Wolves
Created and written by bestselling author Caitlin Moran (How to Be a Woman), this raucous, award-winning British comedy follows six socially-isolated, homeschooled siblings and their formidable single mother. Starring Rebekah Staton (Spy), Raised By Wolves hilariously unfolds as the insular family is reluctantly drawn into the outside world; going underage clubbing, dabbling in voyeurism, taking the law into their own hands, and dealing with major life milestones in their characteristic, highly-inappropriate way.
1. Hand Jam
Home schooled Wolverhampton family of six—the Garrys—are taken out into nature by their survivalist mother, Della, to forage for free food in case society breaks down.
2. Yoko's Got Talent
When Germaine's 'visible panty line' traumatizes the only male Garry child, Della is forced to take the kids into town, on an emergency mission to get roomier knickers.
Germaine resorts to desperate measures when her cousin, Cathy, threatens Germaine's plans to find love. Della tries to be self-sufficient by growing her own food.
4. The iPhone, the Bitch, and the Wardrobe
Della forces the kids to attend their sad uncle's birthday party. Germaine develops an unusual perspective on Cathy and Lee's relationship.
5. Little Orphan Mannie
Della and the kids rescue a distraught Grampy in the aftermath of a family bereavement, with little comfort coming from his wife.
1. The Monroe Technique
Della cancels the Internet, forcing the girls to go to the library where bookish Yoko and Aretha are quite at home. Germaine, on the other hand, is dangerously bored.
2. Hairy Poppins
With the landlady coming to inspect the house, Della organizes a clean-up and sends the children to spend the day with their unemployed father, Sean.
3. Old School
Della is shocked when Aretha declares that she wants to go to school. Unfortunately the school is chaotic and badly run and Aretha's rant against it gets her expelled.
4. Working Girl
As Aretha enjoys college life with radical Economics lecturer, Della takes Germaine to work with her at Pound Lord to show her life in the real world.
5. The Car Boot
To raise money to pay the gas bill, Della drags the family off to a car boot sale. The little ones do well by playing the sympathy card to shoppers.
Love it! After the first episode
Love, Love, Love!!!!
Very quirky definitely in Britsh sensibilities - very offbeat - under use of various characters particularly the youngest vs. relying on Germaine overall - not sure what to make that there is an assumed divorced mother of 6 living on minimum wage with her father in two - a bit of a stretch in terms of plot - if interested if something completely different this is it....
Absolutely love this show.
