I can't believe that this show was canceled to put on What About Joan'! Who cares about Joan? This is one of the only shows with an already well-known star in it. Geena Davis plays Teddie Cochran, a successful businesswoman who falls in love with family man Max Ryan. But along with this new beau are two kids. The know-it-all-teen-age boy, Carter, played by Freaks and Geeks' John Francis Daley. And the precious little precocious 6-year-old girl, Eliza, played by The Family Man's' Makenzie Vega.
Everything in this show is perfect. Geena Davis does a surprisingly wonderful job in a different kind of role for her. I don't know anything about Peter Horton except for that he is a wonderful actor whom I wish the best of luck to in the future. John Francis Daley in my opinion makes the show. He was funny on Freak and Geeks' and he is even funnier on this show. Makenzie Vega is adorable and a pretty fine actress. Mimi Rogers does the tramp thing very well. I hated her as Agent Fowley on The X Files' but this role has gotten me to like her more. Kim Cole is in her usual role, but hey, stick with what you know.
This was a wonderful show and it's a shame that it got canceled while shows like Grosse Point' stay on the air. It was unfortunately just replaced with another show that will get canceled after a few episodes. 10 out of 10 for being highly amusing and very well written and acted.
