Irish Catholic couple Sean and Claudia Finnerty live in Staten Island, New York, with their three children, Lily, Jimmy, and Henry. They get into all sorts of trouble, usually because of Sean's brother, Eddie, who's got connections all over town. Sean and Eddie's father, Walt, often drops by and shares in the disaster. Most adventures are later recalled and they find out exactly what happened, like when the family car was supposedly stolen or when Sean's credit card was mysteriously maxed out, and even when Sean causes a blackout on Super Bowl Sunday. All this and more, and because Sean and Claudia were young and carefree when they got married and had kids, they are now grounded for life, so to speak. Written by

Jake Burbage (Henry) moved back east with his family in 2004. Instead of writing him out or recasting the role, and since Claudia became pregnant, the producers decided to continue the season with one fewer kid. However, Claudia and Sean often say that they have three kids, even while Henry is nowhere to be found. See more »
Gee, Lil, it was real sweet of Aunt Deadra to call us all the way from dead.

Just got done watching the 1st episode and I liked it. The mom doesn't have the same presence as Jane K. in Malcolm, but there were plenty of puberty and dysfunctional family jokes to go around. Also, Griffin Frazen (Jimmy) is really cute, he reminds me of a younger Justin Berfield. I give this show a 9 out of 10 stars.
