Two thumbs up!!!, 26 February 2001
Author: Aurore from paris, France

This is one of the best 90's sitcom!!! Why did they ever cancel it? I honestly don't know, You see a really handsome-while-kinda-aging Tom Selleck turning (or turned) any everyday problem into a wacky sketch. While Ed Asner plays the usual black humoured old man he do sooo well! Come on guys, don't tell me you've never seen it.Even so, don't ya wanna?!
