Not a terrible show...not a great one either.
11 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The show was being developed for ABC at the time, and this is understandable at the time because all ABC was putting out was crap. This was a family sitcom, pretty typical stuff, and the story was that the main character, Hench, who was a star hockey player for the New York Rangers, retired so he can spend more time with his family. Michael J. Fox wrote and produced the show, and Tracy Pollan, his wife, played Hench's wife. There were three kids: a son who didn't want to play hockey because he wanted to figure skate, a daughter who wanted to prove she was tough enough to play hockey, and a "cute little kid" that was there just to do that. There was a bully at the school that gave the son a hard time. There was a goofy coach at the school, and also a preschool teacher for the younger son who was kinda funny. Then Hench's best friend who kinda helps him take care of the family was the show stealer, he was funny, and he was an actual former Hockey player, Lyndon Byers, of the Boston Bruins.

The show was okay. It had some funny moments, but was very predictable. I was convinced that it would show up on ABC's fall lineup in 2003, especially with Fox backing it, but it didn't. I was at the taping for the show, and Michael J. Fox came out and talked to the audience, and he was awesome, thanking the audience for being patient and for helping the performance of the actors. It was also the first time I saw his struggle with Parkinson's. I think it's great he's still working.
