A comic series about three Britons who come to America, and end up regretting it for the rest of their lives.Since its inception the series has undergone a complete overhaul and given a loose plot. The series likes to avoid Status Quo Is God as much as possible.The series starts in London, England in 1976. The Browning family, consisting of 12-year-old Shaun and 10-year-old Graeme, as well as their depressed father Francis, lose their home and their matriarch, Maria, to foreclosure and cancer, respectively. After a brief stay in Croydon, they move to the city of South Falls, Florida, and begin a life that's not all that much better.Then it GETS better.Fast-forward to 2010. Shaun, now 46, has become a well-respected archaeologist and linguist, and has been married for 26 years to Evelyn Rhodes, a formerly homeless Frenchwoman, and travels the world incessantly. Graeme, 44, has purchased an dingy apartment and has been married for 15 years to Holly Eastings, then divorces her when she turns out to be his long-lost sister. Francis remains a homeless old man who doesn't want to be happy, refusing to let his sons help him.Eventually, the local police force stages a coup and overhtrows the mayor, effectively putting everyone in town who isn't considered important on lockdown. Chief-of-Police and now King of the newly-renamed "New Tenochtitlan" James Barnaby is quite corrupt, unfortunately for everyone.So maybe it doesn't get better after all.
