Storyline

When Big Guy Beck dies, the heirs to his estate are given a stipulation (via a pre-recorded video will) before they inherit his wealth. They have to live with Big Guy's illigitimate son, Wild Bill Westchester and his wife Bootsie, and they have to learn to accept the Westchesters as their own family. Of course, this does not bode well with the snooty Becks, and petty rivalries and catfights soon ensue in this sitcom spoof of '80s primetime dramas. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Bootsie: We celebrate everything. First date, first kiss, first....
Carlotta: We get the picture. Our only regret is that we did not have time to purchase an appropriate gift. Perhaps a silver platter with rabbits on it.

Want the Video!!
22 June 2002 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This was the funniest series that was ever on TV. It needs to be available on video. I for one would buy several to give as gifts. Ann Wedgeworth is just hilarious, but every actor is superb. After 20 years, I still remember some of the scenes! Anyone who ever saw it has never forgotten it.
