Very funny premise
13 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While most people I talk to don't remember this show, I remember it fondly. It was a pleasant, good clean fun type sitcom. The writers could have done so much more with this material. But unfortunately poor writing, not poor acting led to this programs demise. Monte Markham was underrated and extremely talented as both the elder Luke and his Grandson Ken. Arthur O'Connell played the "son & father" caught in the middle. Trying hard to hide the identity of his one hundred and one year old father who was the exact double for the young son.

There were some pretty cute moments when Arthur O'Connell was trying to keep "Dad" from doing or saying something that would give away the secret. I seem to remember Luke masquerading as his grandson Ken to get out of the house and check out this "new" world.

A delightful program. I would love to see this one season available on DVD. While the writing was mediocre, the interaction of the characters was always a joy.
