This series took place in an apartment building, numbered 227. The cast would frequently be found sitting outside on a large set of stone stairs, in some discussion that would unfold into the weekly plot line.
Thelma Harper and her spinster sister Fran open their home to Thelma's recently divorced son Vinton and his teenage son and daughter. It's quite an adjustment for everyone, especially the cranky, argumentative Thelma. Written by

Most shows that are on the air today are crass, exploitive and just plain not funny. But this eighties gem is hilarious and I recommend you catch at least one episode. It's funny how the show got better after NBC cancelled it. They moved to syndication and the show got much better. The two stars that make this show so funny are the sharp tounged Mama (usually with a can of Big Top Beer stuck in her hand) and her bumbling son Vinton. If you are looking for a show that actually can be funny without being disgusting, then try Mama's Family. I'm the last guy who thought Mama's Family would be funny, but it's become my second favorite tv show. Have to go, Mama's Family is starting. Have a good one.
