Lots of laughs with Brian Dennehy
31 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

What happened to this one? What didn't the networks like about it? Interesting story about a retired firefighter who looks forward to taking up artistic hobbies but his days are interrupted when his three children move back home and fill up his time with their problems. Led by Brian Dennehy as Dad Fitzgerald who now has to put down his paintbrush and listen and sort out the kids' problems, particularly his prized son, the Goldman Sachs stockbroker who called it quits cuz he wants to "find himself". Good clean family fun and entertainment with lots of laughs. Did it make a whole season? If so, hope to see it at least as a future DVD set.
