A good solid family show
4 May 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Step by Step was a show ran from 1991-1998. The premise of the show is based on Frank and Carole spontaneously got married in Jamaica. They had to introduce there kids quickly and have a step family. The show is like the Brady Bunch but at first the 2 families hated each other. Lamberts (Frank, Brandon, JT, Al(icia)were rugged, dirty, outdoorsy group whilst Fosters (Carole, Dana, Mark and Karen) were clean, smart, proper. Their personalities always clashed. By S1 E5, cousin of Lamberts Cody was introduced. Cody was the bridge that kept the family together. He was in love with Dana from day one while she rejected him, but eventually they became friends. Cody was a stereotypical valley boy people see as in idiot. But he is smarter then Dana on the SATs, loving nicest and more complex then people give him credit for. He was my favourite character because of that, and like Steve Urkle of Family Matters, he was the star of the show.

Step by Step was a great family show, season 1-5 was really good. But by end of Season 5, the cast changed. Sasha (Cody) got fired for his legal issues, and they introduced Lily, the biological child of the union. Rich Halke was introduced as full-time cast to replace Cody. Brandon left by season 7, Mark less time as well. By season 7 the show was unrecognizable.

The show could elaborate on the story of the exes of Frank Carole, tell about the genealogy of the kid, where they come from. Why they left because that is important. This is why instead of 10/10, i gave it 8/10.
