do all you people work on this show or something? i think this show is
the phoniest, most pop-polyester show around. I suppose it's biggest
downfall is that it tells its story in the slimiest, marketable, PC
way... in using a dare-to-be-risqué-in-a-faux-rebellious tactic... and
that oozes from every pore... the characters are as cardboard cut-out
as the acting effort put into them. It's like, we can understand you
want to give a moral or message each episode... but do you have to
insult our intelligence by thinking we believe people are really like
and for people to be surprised at Mel's involvement, i have to say that i am not. I like him, but you have to admit that as he has been getting older and been focusing more on his religion that you can see his outlook has seen a definite path. he's made some amazing stuff, but i suppose has suffered where most artists do... in that REAL people are only really interested in what you say when you are struggling (take eminem for example, good early stuff, but once he got more successful and rich - there is a lot less stuff you can complain about that us peasants will appreciate)...
This show is pretty cliché and unoriginal in almost every regard, but
my family and I always had a fun time watching it. I agree with the
other reviewer who said that the 2 youngest boys don't contribute
anything to the show. The father and the oldest son (I don't even
remember their names now) are the only ones with even a hint of acting
talent or interesting character...the others are just too over played
and don't add much to the show, same with the uncle jimmy guy.
I think that the funniest part of the show was the safety videos that the father would show the kids. They were so lame (intentionally) and obvious spoofs of those cop shows that lecture on safety. I found myself looking forward to the part in each episode where the dad would show the videos to the kids. After like the first 6 or 8 episodes, there were no more of these videos, which i thought greatly detracted from the show.
All in all, its a poorly written and poorly acted show, but one thats proves to be entertaining (sometimes its just lame) regardless of the cheesiness of it all. Just watch it for fun and don't expect too much, and you wont be too disappointed.
It's so awful that I can't believe that Mel would allow his name to be attached to this project.Hasn't this story line already been used for decades? Beginning long ago with "My Three Sons?" Can't Hollywood be more creative? The one young man (I'll be kind and not state his name.) is obviously getting jobs based upon his resume and or his looks. He couldn't act his way out of a paper bag. The story lines are predictable and boring. The actors are...I cant find the word...(horrible?)No wonder "reality Television" is taking over the networks!In a nutshell: bad casting, bad acting, bad writing= BAD T.V. If you've never seen it...don't waste your time.
A shameless "Quintuplets" rip-off, telling the story of the lives of a man living with five boys. The jokes are dry, the humor is almost non-existent. The acting is bad, and almost everything about this show is a disgrace to all sit-coms. The lines about underwear, and armpits are not funny, they are simply stupid. I hope that not many people watch this poor excuse for a show. Shows like this are the reason that actual good shows, such as, "Andy Richter Controls The Universe" get cancelled, because the networks want new material... Please make it stop. If you want a good show about quintuplets, then watch "Quintuplets", not this rip-off. I hope with all of my heart that this show does not last very long.
This show centers around the stereotypical male-clustered and
single-parented (as all sitcoms are) Savage family. The kids are
annoying, kind of like sores on the inside of your mouth, you feel it
with your tongue to see if it still hurts.
Mel Gibson really dropped the ball on this one. He is a creator and producer, and also a human being who makes mistakes... which is obvious by this annoying show.
Now let's go to the TGIF history books... Boy Meets World, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, You Wish, Family Matters... this show is not the family show that it disguises itself as. It has no place in TGIF, past, present, or future.
