Just a appreciation, not a review
6 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

I loved this show. The feeling of family was so real. The characters were so not cookie cutter. The sense of the Northwest, even for such a cheesily produced program as a sitcom, was palpable. Dennis Quaid was solid, yet wacky. I fell in love with Patricia Cookson at once. When they added Bonnie Hunt, I fell even more in love with the show. Even the kids were terrific, and I hate kids. Best of all, Jonathan Winters was given the freedom to be both Gunny Davis and whoever the gunny thought he ought to be, at any given moment. A rich wonderful rewarding experience!
