Storyline

When Marcy Bradford dies, she leaves her teen-age daughter Nicole in the custody of a father she has never met; or rather, two fathers - Michael, a straight-laced and formal man; and Joey, a wild artist. Both were Marcy's former boyfriends, and together, they provide a unique balance of parenting skills for young Nicole. Written by Phil Fernando

Goofs

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 »

hilarious
15 August 2010 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

Need one of television's ad hoc families? I recommend this one. Nicole's (Staci Keenan) mother dies, and her two old flames inherit her per her will. One of them is her father, but no one knows who. They used to be best friends, but parted enemies, and now make up their differences for Nicole's sake and move into Joey's apartment and try to put up a "normal" family. Of course, the two dads have totally different personalities;Michael is an uptight consultant while Joey is a carefree, spontaneous artist. This makes for the funniest situations which of course get settled by the end of the episode. I think this is one of the funniest comedies of the '80s. If you have the time, check it out.
