Harry Boyle, a mostly conservative businessman, has a son, Chet, and a daughter Alice. Chet is a hippie and Alice is sexually liberated. Harry's shrewd youngest son Jamie is often an ally, but Harry's wife Irma is a neutral in the ongoing generational war. Their paranoid reactionary neighbor, Ralph, prepares them for the oncoming takeover by the Communists. Written by J.E. McKillop <jack-mckillop@worldnet.att.net>

Wait Till your Father gets home
1 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

I am an avid fan of the series. I am looking for others to share my interest in the DVD set. Let me know what you think. I believe I can help with any questions you may have as I have ran some fan clubs in the past for this great television comedy. I can remember seeing the show when I was a smaller one and really didn't get it, yet as I grew older I started to think about the material and what was said and was blown away. Some of the racial comments were treated lightly due to the cartoon style and I thought this was a crazy concept and I think that is why it has stayed with us in one way or another.

Thanks, Larry
