Season 4

Starting off as the story of Sean and Claudia Finnerty, young parents trying to cope with raising a family, Grounded for Life has moved on a lot.

Though Lily is still the drama-queen, Jimmy is as neurotic about manhood as ever and Henry's still the family wiseman, they've grown up – and, of course, with that comes a whole bag of new problems.

In this exciting fourth season, the Finnerty family continues their struggle to reach normality – or any similar state.

While Sean and Claudia still battle and argue over life's "little conspiracies" the kids start to explore their worlds from totally new angles – like most adolescents do.

Even Brad, the next-door science-geek, seems to have changed as Lily's discovers new feelings towards her former "neighbour from hell".

Make sure you pen down your date with the most dysfunctional family on television.
