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

The best show in a long time!
19 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is easily the best show that has been on air in a really lone time! The characters are awesome, and what little adventures the boys go on each episode are classic!! I hope this show is put on for a next season for the fall line-up! If this show got canceled, it would be the stupidest thing that ABC ever did. Don't cancel this show!!! The characters are so different, and their interactions can sprout off to a million adventures! I actually laugh out loud when I watch this show, when normally when I watch sitcoms I don't. I sometimes laugh so hard I cry! Plus, how much better can you get when you watch 5 cute teenage boys run rampantly around with all their "boy adventures" !!!!!! I hope this show is successful, and has at least 6 awesome seasons! I applaud the writers who write such witty and original dialogue, and the director for wrangling the five teenage boys! And to the cast and crew who pull everything together and make this show great!
