The Lyons is a dark comedy/drama that shows a snapshot in the lives of the Lyons family. The mother and father are both cranky, and the two children are a bit weird.

The first act of the show was brilliant - it was funny and they did a good job exaggerating the little quirks that every family/relationship has. The show got rather strange in the second act, but it ended with a good message ("be happy") and was still quite funny.
