I can't criticise this show too much for being unfunny because most mid-70s sitcoms were unfunny. I do have to comment on the casting, though. This was a sitcom about a bachelor living at home with his over-protective mother. Both actors were doing their best with poor material but the mother didn't look particularly old and the son didn't look particularly young, and the interaction between them seemed strange (even to me, and I was ten years old at the time). After the show had been on for a couple of weeks I remember reading a feature about the two stars, and it turned out that the actor playing the son was ten years older than his screen mother. "My Son Reuben" sank without trace and judging by the response to it on this site I may be the only person who remembers it at all, but if there's anyone out there who can shed light on the casting choices I'd appreciate it.
