Storyline

Tiny, O-shaped Tony Kleinman and his mate, former professional jock Bernie Widman, still a popular womanizer, co-present a TV talk show in Philadelphia, mainly devoted to sports and athletes of all disciplines. Tony compensates his size by a big mouth, often cleverly phrasing but alas almost as often too quickly yapping, as all too often he only talks himself into more trouble, especially at home, where he faces a well-meaning wife, who happens to be 'always right' more often then a man can stand, especially as she isn't often really wrong, and a tomboy daughter driving anyone to despair, mouthier then him, devious, as assertive and selfish as only spoiled teenage girls can be, and convinced poor devoted dad is the scum of the earth, too embarrassing to take any notice of if it can be helped, and she can get away with an awful lot. Tony's firstborn, Mickey, is a darling boy, and a gifted golfer, but as meek as a lamb, as ambitious as a clam and as assertive as a punching ball: the ... Written by KGF Vissers

This show in FANTASTIC!
8 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every single episode that I have seen has made me laugh out loud, even when I'm at home alone watching the show. The writing is witty, charming and deals with situations that most people can relate with. The dynamics in Tony's family are well thought out as well- Jason Alexander plays a perfect Tony- who is lovable, funny, charming and a bit of the underdog- we always want to root for him. Malcolm-Jamal Warner is a perfect match for Jason. Malcolm has attitude and humor that keeps me coming back for more as well. I LOVE the flashback scenes! I love getting the insight into the life of Young Tony who seems to have experienced some pretty pathetic situations as a kid. This show is fun, clean and allows our entire family to share some great laughs without us(as parents)feeling nervous about the content that our kids might be seeing.
