Storyline

Joe Gardner, a child of the Depression, is a successful plastics manufacturer in Seattle, Washington. After his wife dies, his four adult children move back in. Anne, 35 and an ex-hippie, has been divorced twice and returns with her two children, David and Sunny. Lindley, 31, is a sales representative in her father's company and a new mother. Jack, 30, is a drifter "trying to find himself," and Sam, Joe's youngest child, is a preppy who is married to Kay, a free-spirit. Written by J.E. McKillop <jack-mckillop@worldnet.att.net>

Good show but no second season
30 June 2004 | by (Saco, Maine) – See all my reviews

Why? It's ratings were good but NBC couldn't find a place for it on its fall lineup so it was cancelled. I don't know why. It could have been made a midseason replacement for a show that didn't make it. Please, Paramount, or whatever studio that produced it, bring it

out on DVD. Sarah Jessica Parker's second series was better

than her first but it suffered the same fate. Too bad she had to wait eleven years for her first hit series.
