The 70s meets the 90s in a classic Aussie Rock'n'Roll sitcom.
Attempting to close the generation gap, popular Aussie sitcom All Together Now ran for four successful seasons, playing out 101 madcap episodes of nostalgic rock’n’roll fuelled family comedy from 1991 - 1993.
Back in 1972, Bobby Rivers (Logie winner Jon English, Against The Wind) and his rock band Still Waters were at the top of the pop charts with “Easy Street”, a catchy if not prophetic tune that defined an era of carefree living.
Fast forward to 1990, caught in a time-warp – Bobby is wistfully reminiscent of a time when long hair, love beads, incense, peace and harmony were part of the zeitgeist. Discovering he is the father of 15 year-old twins Anna (Jane Hall, Neighbours) and Thomas (Steve Jacobs), it’s hard to know who will have the hardest time adjusting to the new family and Bobby will need all the help he can get from long time friends Tracy Lawson (Logie and AFI Award winner Rebecca Gibney, Packed To The Rafters), Wayne Lovett (Bruno Lucia) and Doug Stevens (Garry Who). Series 2 guest stars include: Don Lane, Gary Sweet, Saskia Post, Robert Grubb, Mary-Anne Fahey and Ian McFadyen.
Featuring 23 side-splitting episodes on four discs plus a compilation of hilarious out-takes, All Together Now - Series 2 has Bobby playing nurse and looking after the clan during a flu epidemic. When it’s time for the twins to celebrate their sweet 16th birthday Bobby struggles to find a present. Thomas’ virginity is mistaken for pottery and Bobby gets him some lessons from a professional! Wayne falls in with the mob and out with Bobby. Will Tracy and Bobby finally get it together?
