Sitcom following the life of Ed Robinson, the youngest son of a well-to-do south London family. Blind to their own faults the family consider Ed a loser. So does Ed, who hates his job and isn't having much luck with his love life (he's fired at work by his ex-girlfriend). Ed's older brother George is an over-strung time-management executive, his sister is an obsessive interior designer who can't make her mind up in regards to boyfriends and his parents... well they just bicker.
