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

Why cancel a good family situation comedy?
3 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have watched this show with my kids over the last couple of weeks and what a refreshing change from the normal rubbish American family situation comedies we are normally subjected to.Others have mentioned Quintuplets and 8 Simple Rules when reviewing here, outside of the US the only people who watch those truly awful shows are kids. I spent some of the summer in the US and you do have some excellent shows and some really awful ones. The rest of the world has a suspicion that all Americans are children and when a show like The Complete Savages is cancelled and the aforementioned crap is popular, it confirms that suspicion.Savages demonstrates to the rest of the world that Americans don't all live in perfect houses with perfect jobs and perfect lives. It makes you appear human, warm and funny sometimes,just like the rest of us. Savages is quirky and endearing. One of my children actually said that he thought American children only ever get 'A's in school, that is how family life is portrayed, plastic and enough sugar to make you reach for the sick bucket. I mourn the passing of this great family show! Just as an after thought, it could have been developed into an hour long comedy drama and may have worked better.
