BREEDERS: THE FINAL SEASON
Starring: Martin Freeman, Daisy Haggard, Oscar Kennedy, Zoë Athena, Alun Armstrong, and Joanna Bacon
Creators: Martin Freeman, Chris Addison, and Simon Blackwell
In its fourth and final season (sadly, another great show ending this year), Breeders continues to be the best exploration of a multi-generational family on television, succeeding at being everything Modern Family wished it was. This year, we get another time jump, which means Paul (Martin Freeman) and Ally’s (Daisy Haggard) kids, who were grade-schoolers in Season One, are now on the verge of adulthood. This was the perfect approach for the final season, as it brings many of the series’ themes full circle, really driving home the point that “breeders” are how the whole darned human comedy keeps perpetuating itself. I’ll miss The Worsleys.
