As always with any long-running comedy series, there are some inconsistencies in characters' back-histories between episodes, but we generally excuse them. Discrepancies between this series and Cheers (from which it is a spin-off) are completely exempt from nitpicking (and some have been explained away, anyway). See more »

If you don't get it, you don't understand
20 September 2004 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

I was pleased to see the Crane boys rewarded at the Emmys in 2004; a fitting tribute to 11 years of highly entertaining TV, the like of which I personally will miss terribly.

Reading some of the comments on this site prompted me to write that the characters created are all based on the premise that the two experts on life are constantly frustrated by their own shortcomings and are guided, ignorantly, by the other characters, who demonstrate that their own interpretations on how to run their lives supercede the tertiary-educated brothers.

I will sorely miss the interactions between all members of the cast and the ability of the show to hit the nail fairly and squarely on the head, when it comes to addressing the vagaries of interfamilial relationships. If you don't get this, you never will and you will never see the funny side of life.

I look forward to Australia receiving the most recent episodes, as we are still watching reruns from about 1998! Lucky us!
