Good Show
3 February 2012 | by (L.A. CA) – See all my reviews

I remember this show as well. THE SUPER was funny and led by the supremely talented character Richard Castellano. He would also try sitcoms again with Joe & Sons (I believe that one had Jerry Stiller has his sidekick). But this one had Bruno Kirby as his son and they played well off of each other. As they mention on this page, Kirby would go on to play Castellano's infamous GODFATHER character, Clemenza, in the flashback sequences in GODFATHER 2. This show had a good cast and good writing and embraced the blue collar people in the urban cities. But soon, cosmopolitan settings and Love Boat and such were big and people wanted to "escape." I personally like these kinds of shows and much later down the line, ROSEANNE came on and showed people truly living paycheck to paycheck.
