The big joke on this show was that there was no Eisenhower--Big Bud, the father of the main character, had painted that on the sign to make his son's law firm sound more impressive. Bud (Scott Bakula) was just a tacky storefront lawyer. Bakula is a likable enough actor, but his low-key charm is better suited to more conventional leading-man roles. He wasn't goofy enough for this one. The women in his life were played by Patricia Richardson and DeLane Matthews, who would costar a year later in another short-lived sitcom "FM," before going on to greater fame in "Home Improvement" and "Dave's World," respectively.
