The early life and career of Vito Corleone in 1920s New York is portrayed while his son, Michael, expands and tightens his grip on his crime syndicate stretching from Lake Tahoe, Nevada to pre-revolution 1958 Cuba.
This was a simple, yet funny show because it was both earthy and innocent at once. My favorite episodes were (1) Joe and Gus trying to hide what they thought was Bobby's marijuana plant, and Jerry Stiller trying to hide it by eating it; or (2) the one where Nick was wetting the bed. But the best moment on screen was when Aunt Josephine wanted them to tell that they loved her, and Joe couldn't say it. But when Nick lovingly said "I love you, Aunt Josephine!" She said "Thank you Nick--here's 5 dollars!" Joe piped right up and forced out, "I...love...you...Aunt Josephine." Maybe you had to be there. Too bad it only lasted a short time. (btw Jimmy Baio was Scott Baio of Happy Days' cousin, right?)
