Not a bad show
24 February 2007 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

I remember this one. I think it came on as a summer replacement show but was only on for a short time. It was ABC's attempt at capitalizing on the success of All In The Family. It went for the crude realism that shows were going for at that time.

A good example of that would be the opening credits which had Castellano walking the dirty sidewalks of NYC. Doing this he steps in something (perhaps dog waste} and then using the curb to scrape it off. Now that's realism! You would never have seen something like that back in the 50's or 60's

I think the Dom Deluise vehicle "Lotsa Luck" was a better attempt at the All In The Family type show but all in all this wasn't too bad.
