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

Complete ---> Savages!
14 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

I saw all of the episodes aired on TV. Pilot episode was especially entertaining.

At first the Savage family might appear crazy and dysfunctional. The more you keep watching you cannot stop and you realize they function perfectly exactly the way they are. This show is about kids, and a single dad. It is about an uncle, some friends and girlfriends, and of course safety precautions given by Officer Cox. Mel Gibson is hilarious in this role. This show is great. It's funny and entertaining. It's a must see kind of show. It is one of those TV shows that should stay on the TV screens for a while. I bet even re-runs would be fun to watch.
