Great comedy, one of my all-time favorites
23 May 2000 | by (South Germany) – See all my reviews

I think, this comedy series is one of the best I have ever seen. If you are searching for a good laugh, try "Hey Dad". I can watch it 1000 times, and I can always laugh over the jokes. After watching this show over some time, the actors are almost becoming something like family members. When it was on air in my country, I never missed an episode.
