The odds of both "dads" and their "daughter" having the same or similar blood types is very remote. Even before the DNA test was performed, the basic blood tests at the time could have excluded at least one dad as being a possible father. Given the financial expenses of claiming paternity and the emotional issues involved, not resolving the entire premise of the series quickly was needlessly cruel. See more »
I've read through these comments, all bashing MTD's, but for me growing with two homosexual fathers, the show was a godsend! There, once a week, was a family that looked and acted just like mine - except I didn't have a neighbor like Dick Butkus, he-he. Greg Evigan and Paul Reiser had this unspoken sexual chemistry, just like my father's, Stan and Randy (though sometimes their chemistry was more that just unspoken but that's a story for Dr. Phil!). MTD's quickly became my life. I collected the entire set of trading cards (sold only in Israel), the backpack, and the hair gell endorsed by Greg Evigan at the time (for a firm, stylish hold...). Really, the only thing I can say to sirs, Evigan and Reiser, "Thank you, my two sweet princes."
