Tony Micelli, a retired baseball player, becomes the housekeeper of Angela Bower, an advertising executive in New York. Together they raise their kids, Samantha Micelli and Jonathon Bower, with help from Mona Robinson, Angela's man-crazy mother.
Ray Barone seemingly has it all. A wonderful wife, a beautiful family, a great job, a nice house on Long Island. There's only one problem. His obnoxious parents (who live across the street) and his jealous brother are always getting in the way. Written by
The Where's Lunch production company logo shows a plate of food being placed on a dining table with a red checkered table cloth. Each episode has its own unique plate of food. On the final episode, a check is presented instead of a plate of food. The check reads "No Charge. Thank You." See more »
This is probably the most over rated show in the last two decades. It wasn't that funny. I enjoyed the show on some level, and would have enjoyed it a LOT more if Ray's obnoxious parents weren't on the show, or if anyone had ever stood up to them without backing down or apologizing in the next scene. They ruined the show.
Robert was great and even Ray was moderately funny. Deborah was more bitchy than anything else and the kids were just window dressing, as they are with most sitcoms. It just seemed to be the same show every week. They could have made the show fantastic by getting rid of Ray's parents, or at least the mom. His dad was great. But they should have killed her off in the first season and the show would have been a keeper.
