I saw this program on a "self-erasing" videotape sent to me by a marketing firm in June of 2006. The printed materials that came with the tape suggested that this program was "being considered" for network series status. Nine years after it was made? I don't think so! Apparently this pilot is being used as a shill to get recruited audiences to sit through commercials for products like Energizer batteries and Pepperidge Farm cookies. It must have been chosen because it is so utterly non-controversial (and bland) that it made the commercials seem lively by comparison. Its plot, if you can call it that, focuses on three youngish dads trying to support each other through divorce, their kids starting preschool and other mildly interesting mini-crises. I can see why it was never picked up for broadcast. A cookie-cutter "cute" show with some of the most obnoxious child actors I've ever seen, it even featured a bad performance by Rue McLanahan (with an on-again-off-again German accent) as the preschool's headmistress. Not worth watching, even if you ARE getting paid to do so!!
