A year after his father's fatal accident, Joe Roman returns to Philadelphia to collect his share of his Dad's estate, a car customizing business. His reunion with Claire and his half-brothers is a little rocky. Despite her best efforts, Claire is struggling to keep the business afloat. Fifteen-year-old Matt, tormented by a number of teen crises both real and imagined, harbors a lot of resentment toward Joe. And Andy, a wildly imaginative seven-year-old, can't quite hide his need for a father figure. It doesn't take Joe long to realize how much he's needed, so he accepts Claire's offer to move in and work in the family business. Downstairs in the garage, Joe works alongside his father's pit-crew chief, the slightly scrambled Lloyd, and Lou, a feisty conceptual artist/mechanic. The romantic tension between Lou and Joe grows as the two try to maintain a working relationship. Upstairs, Joe is becoming a part of the family he never knew, with all the adjustments, responsibilities, joys and... Written by Anonymous

This Show Is My Favorite Show On Earth!!!!!!
9 November 2002 | by (Warsaw, Poland) – See all my reviews

This was my favorite show on earth!!! I can't believe they stopped airing it on TV!!! It was so funny, and I think Matt Lawrence is the HOTTEST guy alive!!! I hope they start showing it on Disney again like they did "Sister, Sister". I only have like 10 episodes on tape, so I gotta see some different ones! If you ever saw this show, you would know what I'm talking about!!!
