John Ritter returns to TV in a genial sitcom, playing an aide to a senator (Gaynes). His life is somewhat complicated by his wife (Post)'s father (Asner) having spent a long stretch in prison for financial impropriety, and her somewhat-unnecessary attempts to re-integrate him into society.

I think I preferred the show best when it was set in Washington D.C. over Arkansas. Anyway, the relationship between Markie Post and John Ritter sizzled on screen. They had a terrific supporting cast like Billy Bob Thornton, Conchata Farrell, Beth Broderick, Wendie Jo Sperber, etc. The show was created by Bill Clinton's friends, Bob and Susan Thomason. The show never appeared to be a huge success but the show's writing was alright but the cast was first rate with sitcom veterans Post and Ritter. I think the show could have lasted longer but CBS who also had Evening Shade and Designing Women must have had problems with the show's creators. I don't know what happened but I still think the show had legs but the network didn't give it a chance to shine. It could have sizzled if time was allowed for it to adjust.
