Storyline

Comedy series about a top architect, Martin Kelly, who gives up his business to cope with his three children when his wife dies. With the help of eccentric country cousin Betty, Martin soon finds that looking after Jenny, Debbie and Simon means more decisions, problems and crises than he ever faced at work. Martin later departs to take on a high paying architectural job in Saudi Arabia, leaving his friend, divorced father of two, Greg Russell, to take over the Kelly family business.

BEST TELEVISION SERIES EVER
27 December 1999 | by (Dortmund, Germany) – See all my reviews

But only the first four seasons! Hey Dad is one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. Sooner or later you'll become addicted to the show and it's very special kind of humor.
