Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This Australian sitcom was the brainchild of a British producer, namely Vince Powell of Thames Television. Set in Sydney, the series starred John Bluthal as Enzo Pacelli, an Italian immigrant working as a cab driver. Although Enzo and wife Maria (Arianthe Galani) remained loyal to their old-world values (and their native language -- at least most of the time), their children were thoroughly assimilated "Aussies," so much so that they could not understand anything spoken by their monolingual Italian grandma (and vice versa). The 26 episodes of Home Sweet Home were originally telecast from 1980 to 1982.
