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
A very average television show in the vein of "Full House"
Joey, Matt and Andy are three brothers living in Philly in a building above a car garage where they work. The garage used to be owned by their father, but he has recently passed away, leaving the three boys (one an adult, one a high-schooler and a middle-schooler) to live with their mother.
Every episode of the show would somehow involve a moment where the oldest brother gets in a tizzy and throws a fit, then later apologizes and acknowledges that he still is upset about his father's death. This tension resurfaces in every episode - and gets really old. Obviously his father's death is the foundation of the plot for the show, but that doesn't mean the entire narrative needs to somehow center around this.
The supporting cast is rather weak - the other two Lawrence brothers (they're all brothers in real life) decrease in acting ability by age, the youngest becoming nothing more than the equivalent of a Mary-Kate/Ashley Olsen "cute" gimmick, and there is of course the comedic role given to a troublesome co-worker at the garage - an overweight slob named Lloyd who eats. A lot. Har, har.
Overall it's not surprising to see this was canceled after two years - the characters weren't interesting enough to sustain a lengthy run, and the producers never really expanded the story lines enough. Every time you tune in you're basically getting a variation upon the same concept, and in spite of poor acting and lousy scriptwriting this sealed "Brotherly Love's" fate.
