Married to the Kellys is rather a charming show. The main couple are from New York City who move to Kansas City to live near her family. This is admirable for network to actually have a character who is not that arrogant for a New Yorker. He was born and raised as an only child and married a Kansas girl who loves her family. Her parents are played by Nancy Lenehan and Sam Anderson who both have several guest television spots for as long as I can remember. Finally, Nancy and Sam have their own show where they can act rather than guest appearances. The New York couple have rather adjusted easily to a slower pace of life and socializing regularly with a loving family. Sure, the Kellys can be corny but they are not naive or crazy about their New York relatives who have moved to the same town. I love Lewis Kelly as the oddball brother with an insect collection and studying it in college. The good sister, Mary Kelly is wonderfully played and her sister, Susan, the New Yorker turned Kansan, have a solid silly rivalry with their husbands. Of course, I enjoyed the Christmas episode and other episodes of the show. Thank God, the network has allowed this show to grow and expand. Maybe Susan and Mary will have children next. If you want good light family comedy without politics or preaching, this is it for now.
