An underrated TV gem
16 July 2001 | by (Seminole, FL) – See all my reviews

This was a very quiet comedy about a family where the two younger siblings are being raised by the older brother, their ne'er-do-well father having deserted years ago. Suddenly, the "ever lovin' daddy" returns. After a bit of resistance to having him back, the family re-unites in this quiet, warm comedy. Great reviews and rock-bottom ratings, a deadly combination, but if you have the chance to see this on tape (if someone had the foresight), catch it. There weren't too many episodes made, but those that were made were wonderful.

If this series had succeeded, it could have changed the course of movie history. It wasn't too long after that Mark Hamill did Star Wars and Gary Busey starred as Buddy Holly.
