Watchable entertainment, but doesn't work up to its potential, 14 November 2002
Author: mattymatt4ever from Jersey City, NJ

I'm a big Dennis Farina fan, so when I saw the promos for the show, I couldn't wait until it premiered. The premise is very nifty. A lot of awkward situations can arise from a guy moving in with his wife's parents, especially if the father is Dennis Farina. It's hilarious to watch him react callously to his son-in-law's antics. Unfortunately, the show can use stronger writing. Farina is brilliant like always, and is the main provider of the laughs on the show, but Elon Gold is only a fairly good comedian. He has talent, but he's somewhat dull and hackneyed. The actress who plays his wife is deliciously hot. The most memorable gag on the show was during the Halloween episode, where Farina called a "meeting of the five families" in the neighborhood to discuss Halloween decorations. This of course was a witty homage to "The Godfather."

I'm not bashing the show, and wouldn't mind if it lasts a couple more seasons. I don't rearrange my schedule to come home in time for "In Laws," but if I happen to be home while it's on, I usually check it out. But with a better creator and better writers, this show could've gone a lot farther. And face it, my man Dennis deserves a lot better.

My score: 6 (out of 10)
