Bill and Ben seem at first sight a typical couple, married with children Jenny and David and unmarried man-loving family friend Rona. Further developments show, however, that they are prone to situations of an increasingly bizarre nature, belying the ironic implications of the show's title.

Also involved periodically are Ben's assistant, the aggressive Christine, his sister Tina, a fluffy fussy travesty of femininity, Bill's mother Bette and her sister Belle, Ben's father Frank, Rona's Auntie Pearl, Ben's arch enemy and plumber-trickster Jake the Klingon, snotty neighbours Dora and Leonard Grimes, and prospective in-laws Harry and Laura Carson.

Clare Woodgate left the show after two series, changed her name to Georgina Cates and headed for Hollywood.

Series creator Andrew Marshall wrote all episode descriptions for this episode guide.
