Cuckoo 1

Cuckoo Series 1

Cuckoo is a British-Irish sitcom that began in 2012 on BBC and worldwide on Netflix.

Greg Davis (as Ken)
his wife Lorna (Helen Baxendale)
daughter Rachel (Tamla Kari)
son Dylan (Tyger Drew-Honey)
and Rachel’s new husband Dale ‘Cuckoo’ Ashbrick (Andy Samberg)

Rachel returns home from her gap year before medical school with a dim-witted husband who has no job and appears to live a hippie life-style.

The real star here is Greg Davis, whose imposing frame (6’8”) works with his sweet relaxed nature to provide most of the comedy.

The first series revolves around him trying to extract a pest from the side of his daughter. But his good nature prevents him from the most outrageous schemes of hisĀ  friends and family.
