Storyline

Single father Nick Savage runs a 'macho' household, having five school-age sons, all rowdy slobs except sensitive, polite 'nerd' Sam, who nevertheless envies dating-slick athlete Shawn. That changes when distantly admired Angela becomes his steady date, a base nine of his brothers ever reached or would admit wanting. Nick's younger brother and fire department colleague Jimmy is their welcome regular guest, but frankly serves as bad adult example of irresponsibility. Written by KGF Vissers

Show could get better and better...
3 October 2004 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

Complete Savages should not be completely dismissed. Along the lines of any comedy featuring a large family unit, Complete Savages could provide entertainment week after week -- hopefully, the writers will be able to develop fresh story lines and use the talent and situation they've been given. It's not the worst new show -- things like North Shore and Hawaii certainly come to mind for that -- and viewers should give Complete Savages a chance.

Critics hated LAX -- and it's not too bad. They loved Kevin Hill -- how are they going to have fresh story lines with that one without ripping off every courtroom drama ever made? The baby can only be "cute" so many times. Complete Savages does fall between those two. Give this one a chance.
