The War at Home is an American sitcom created by Rob Lotterstein which depicts the dysfunctional family life of Dave and Vicky Gold and their three children in Long Island, New York.

The series originally aired in the USA on FOX from 11 September, 2005 to 22 April, 2007. There are 44 half-hour episodes in two seasons.

The show originally aired in South Africa on M-Net from 28 June, 2006 to 19 September, 2007. It later aired on DStv's M-Net Series channel and SABC3. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 2 premiered on SABC3 on Monday 29 December 2008, at 20h31. There are 22 episodes in the second season.

Synopsis

When Dave and Vicky were growing up, their parents had it easy. Back then, there were no "time-outs," no one had any "boundaries," and "parenting" wasn't even a word. Parents had no idea what their kids were really up to and ignorance truly was bliss.

Now Dave and Vicky have teenagers of their own, and anything their kids might even think about doing, Dave and Vicky have already done ... at least twice. But knowledge isn't power – it's a giant pain. Every day is a battle to keep the kids in line.

Fifteen-year-old Larry isn't exactly a frequent diner at the cool kids' table in the cafeteria; while his sister, 16-year-old Hillary, knows it all and is just emerging onto the dating scene.

Meanwhile, at 13, Mike is all hormones and video games.

Dave and Vicky figure if they can send these three off to college without a police record or kids of their own, they've done their job.

This irreverent show goes inside the heads of a modern family through the use of a confessional space, where the characters reveal everything they could never actually say to one another – as they do their best to win The War At Home.
