Great Casting Underrated Show
3 January 2009 | by GreatornotSee all my reviews

First thing that strikes me is how well this cast meshes . It kind of reminds me of All In The Family in many ways yet very different. Like the early years of AITF you had a bread winner in a family of 4. You had an unwelcome in law but in this case it was a brother in law not a son in law. Where as AITF hit across racial lines and went to the brink... this show was ahead of the times as far as sexual innuendo. The 4 people living in the abode were a working class brother , his mother, his dowdy sister and her free loading husband , that basically sat around wearing a robe all day. Perhaps of the 4 characters, none were all that endowed in the brain department. However, the lazy brother in law , seemed to be the smartest of this pathetic yet lovable clan. He was smart as a fox. Throw in a womanizing friend and coworker of Stan, and you had fodder for many wonderful, comical episodes. Incidentally, Dom Deluise was great as Stanley Belmont as were all the other actors that rounded out this sitcom. Look for guest appearances from Ruth Buzzi, Harold Gould and Suzanne Somers and you have a nice season to be cherished ala unfortunately the only season. The show might be a bit corny at times but definitely good for some laughs.
