Storyline

Fire Captain Buddy Krebs' 16-year-old daughter Jennie Lee begins getting show-business offers because of her singing talents in the country/pop genre. This scares Buddy because he does not want his daughter to grow up too fast. Adding to his troubles, are (1) his wife runs off with a bellhop, (2) his 17-year-old son has muscle instead of brains in his head, (3) his crew down at the firehouse are "strange": Feldmand tells his mother he is a doctor instead of a fireman, Rosetti has only sex on the brain and Max, a Hispanic, speaks fractured English. Finally, his daughter signs with a manager named Moose; the name fits the description of the woman. Written by J.E. McKillop <jmckillo@notes.cc.bellcore.com>

I Remember You, Star of the Family!
14 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Apparently nobody else does. But the 1982 season was one where as a kid, I tried to sample every show before it got canceled. The premise of "Star of the Family" was Brian Dennehy as a kinda workaday guy, a fireman. His daughter wants to be a singer and getting some offers, and Brian is quite nonplussed. The show alternated between scenes set at their house and wacky hi-jinks at the fire department.

The episode I remember featured one of Dennehy's firemen saving a little boy's hamster by using mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. I kid you not. They didn't show this on screen, of course. The fireman who saved the hamster became the laughingstock of the firehouse. The one good gag I recall that had my dad and I laughing quite a bit was that the kid sent the fireman a rubber ball or something as a reward for saving his hamster. In his note, he wrote, "I would have sent you my bike, but it's not like you saved my mother or something." And there you have my recollections of "Star of the Family." Except to say that the lead girl was pretty cute.
