Storyline

Rob is asked to write an amusing bulletin for the PTA bazaar. Richie is having a difficult time explaining to his friends just what his father does at work and he's taking out his frustration on his father. Laura thinks it would be a good idea for Rob to take Richie with him to the office for a day so he can see first hand what his dad does. Rob is skeptical this will work but agrees to give her plan a try. Written by tomtrekp

Head Of The Family
11 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I gave this a ten because it showed the seed planted that eventually grew into the timeless classic "Dick Van Dyke Show". I was amazed at the similarities yet I was also amazed at the differences. The trick to watching this is to not compare it to the "Dick Van Dyke Show" but to watch it as its own work. This is difficult because the names draw you to be reminded of "The Dick Van Dyke Show". However this is also kind of a good thing because you can see the similarities and how they were changed as a result of shaping it into the eventual award-winning situation comedy. Carl Reiner did an amazing job writing and starring in this as he is (in my opinion) a creative genius that can actually act. If you are a fan of the "Dick Van Dyke Show", this is a must-see. Some may not like it as much but again, remember that it isn't the "Dick Van Dyke Show" but the original creative bulb that went off over Carl Reiner's head for the idea of a sit-com. It's great to see where things came from.
