The Pain (aka Jake Porter) is six years old. His sister, The Great One (aka Abigail Porter), is eight. Like any siblings they drive each other crazy. The Pain is sure his parents love The Great One much more than him. The Great One is sure The Pain is loved way more than her. In funny, characterful episodes, the Porter family comes to life as The Pain and The Great One battle it out in the small dramas of everyday life: In Judy Blume's hilarious Soupy Saturdays the Porter siblings experience the difficulties of bike-riding; dramas on the soccer pitch; a sleepover disaster - and 'babysit' a funny old dog who comes to stay.
