The parents are away for a few days, Alex is in charge but cares only for his date Monica, so he wants the girls out; Mallory 'drives' straight into a telephone pole, now they must come up with some ...
Alex starts his sophomore year looking for a girlfriend in the freshman directory. He meets Tricia who seems to be everything he wants. However, after a spat with Tricia's roommate, Ellen, Alex finds...
Tony Micelli, a retired baseball player, becomes the housekeeper of Angela Bower, an advertising executive in New York. Together they raise their kids, Samantha Micelli and Jonathon Bower, with help from Mona Robinson, Angela's man-crazy mother.
Steven and Elyse Keaton, once 1960s radicals, now find themselves in Reagan-era American trying to raise a traditional suburban family. Their three first kids are Alex (a very ambitious Young Republican), Mallory (a ditzy and boy-crazy fashionista) and Jennifer (whom we first get to know as a precocious nine-year-old tomboy). Later on, a fourth child (Andrew) was added to the Keaton family. Most of the comedy arose from the conflict between the ex-hippie parents vs the conservative Alex and the brainless beauty Mallory.
I love this show I just actually ordered some old episodes from Blockbuster, this is honestly one of the best TV sitcoms shows ever!!!!!! Michael J Fox was awesome as Mr. know it all brother (republican) what stands out for me even as a kid when i was watching him was his calculator watch LOL all the time. My favorite character was Mallory Hands down she was the epitome of an 80's girl really pretty, into guys, clothes your normal daughter, Jennifer, a lil tomboy. The mother Elyse was hilarious, as well as Michael Gross(even though its so funny every time I watch him my mom keeps joking he looks like one of our cousins) small joke... anyways to one of the reviewers that said that Elyse the mother was way prettier than Mallory, its wrong. They are both very pretty in different ways (the mother was beautiful for her age group, and Justine Bateman (was pretty for her age group)........ I love Nick I thought he blended well with Mallory and everyone... Skippy was too much of a nerd I am sorry LOL........ To me my favorite character was Justine Bateman, she could have done so much more oh well, she actually standed out from the rest of the cast. Anyways it was an amazing show.. so, watch it LOL
