Series cast summary:
 (2006-2007) (2 episodes, 2005)


David is a harried music producer who does not appreciate his stepsons Brandon and Brody (birth father being Olympic decathlete Bruce Jenner) constantly living off his dime. At times, his wife Linda acts like a third child by enabling their behavior. While David routinely tries to get the "princes" to do their fair share, more often than not it fails. And more often than not their pal Spencer is an accomplice to the shenanigans. Nevertheless, the boys manage to wriggle their way out of trouble through the magic of humor. Although it airs on the same network (Fox) as does The Simple Life (from which it clearly took its cue), it is not produced by the same company. Written by rpaca

Shallow and Hilarious!!!
25 July 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I really liked this show, but then again I liked Michael Snow's Wavelength, Ozu's Tokyo Story and that BTK Killer Speaks special on A and E, so I guess I'll sit through anything.

As a lower-middle class Canadian I had a lot of fun watching the excessive lifestyles of these rich Californians (plus Foster) on many levels. I realize the series was scripted, but remember, reality shows are the new game shows, not the new documentary.

I always thought David Foster was a talentless hack with a studio and no edge, but the way he took on his stepsons made me laugh against my own expectations. This isn't the best show on TV, (See the BTK Killer Special) but I'm definitely going to rent it on DVD because of its educational value.

At its heart, this program shows how you can retaliate against your lazy, mooching kids without getting arrested. For these tips, I will be forever grateful. Here's only some of the great parenting strategies offered by Foster.

1)If your kids refuse to turn the lights out when they leave a room, confiscate all the light bulbs.

2)Always cut off your kids credit cards at the time that will guarantee the greatest amount of humiliation and inconvenience for them.

3)Never leave your kids unattended with Chakka Chakka Chakka Khan.

Pretty good stuff.

Anyway, now that he's got some free time maybe Foster can be the next Dr. Phil and set America's kids straight for good.
