Short lived. But I remember it so well, 8 August 2005
Author: iamsjk from United States

I remember this being a summer fill in show. I think it was on Wednesday evenings

Sadly it was not lucky enough to get picked up by CBS as a regular series.

There were only 4 or 5 episodes shown. Each was introduced by Alan Alda, letting you know that this was his creation, and that he hoped we enjoyed it. It was a typical sit-com of a Blue collar family with family issues.A Mom and A Dad, Two sons, and a over weight daughter with Glasses who has a sharp, sharp tongue. Not a family of great wealth. But a family of great Love!

To prove that I was a child TV addict, I can recall the words to the theme song.

Sometimes its happy, and sometimes its sad. Learning to be a family is not easy. But then with his need and her need... Sure as anything.
