''Series/TwoPointFourChildren'' is a prime example of MagicRealism. It was written by Andrew Marshall, whose former writing partner David Renwick was responsible for the more successful ''Series/OneFootInTheGrave'' (which was more like tragic surrealism). Both jointly created classic radio comedy ''Radio/TheBurkissWay''. ''2point4 Children'' has strong echoes of Burkiss, but is a little less surrealistic.

* StandardizedSitcomHousing: the setting is what could be called ''The Creator/{{BBC}} Semi-Dee'' - the universal semi-detached house found universally all over Britain, and since the 1950's the standard set for BBC family sitcoms of the ''Series/TerryAndJune'' genre. Although ''2.4 Children'' [[GenreSavvy knowingly sends up]] the twee and dated assumptions of the London-based sitcom about a middle-class family, living humdrum comfortable lives in nice parts of suburbia.
