Whatever the opposite of synergy is
9 February 2003 | by (Irving, TX) – See all my reviews

This was definitely less than the sum of its parts. It really had nothing much to recommend it beyond the unusual pairing of Hal Linden and Suzanne Pleshette--and they didn't make too many sparks together, though both are much loved individually. The sons were dull, the grandkids were dull, and the show as a whole added up to not much. It's no wonder this didn't last long.
