Storyline

After penniless cook Matt Landis marries businessman Victor Pellet's spoiled daughter Alex, they agree to save money for his dream to start his own restaurant by moving in with the Pellets. For 'outsider' Matt, this starts years of aggravation, mainly because Alex's dad is domineering and remains overprotective, with a strong hold over his daughter. Furthermore various habits and attitudes keep clashing. Written by KGF Vissers

Funniest new show of the season...
25 October 2002 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

Until I read a preview in a magazine (I believe it was FHM) that called this the best new comedy of the season I was not prepared to give it a chance. Thankfully I did. Dennis Farina is hilarious as Victor Pellet. His character is complicated and well-developed. I would love to see this show moved to Thursdays in lieu of the dreadful "Good Morning Miami". That would make for a night of truly Must-See TV.
