Storyline

Freddie Moreno is a young, successful chef who owns his own Italian restaurant in Chicago. He generously shares his luxurious apartment with three female generations of family: his niece, sister-in-law and domineering, still very Puerto Rican grandmother. They all often abuse his good nature, financially and otherwise, without showing him the respect and gratitude he deserves, and so does his practically in-living best friend, Chris, who attracts trouble.

I never write reviews but...
13 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have a different opinion than the one person who has commented.

I actually love this show, I think it's hilarious. Yes the humor is a tad offbeat, a little different than you'd expect from sitcoms, which is one of the main reasons why I love it.

The premise of the show is a single, young, successful man trying to date and find love while having his family, who all happen to be women, live with him.

I love the chemistry that the actors share and I think both Freddie Prinze Jr. and Brian Green do fabulous jobs at playing their roles. I really enjoy the writing and I look forward to seeing Freddie every week. I for one, am glad for the show!
