Storyline

Seven years after Ray Ellis abandoned his wife Olivia and two children, he is declared officially dead. That's when Ray reenters their life, only to find that Olivia is engaged to marry uptight Army colonel Dickey. Interested in reopening their old relationship, Ray moves next door to Olivia and their kids, hoping to assure them that he has changed his irresponsible ways, much to Dickey's chagrin.

Awesome
31 July 2018 | by Wisesoldierthe6See all my reviews

I was born in the 90's and I do highly respect old classic shows because they got this feel that is loss in today's shows.

Not sure why a good show that had substance didn't get picked up for another season.

Everything about this show was excellent. An Ex-Con Israelite male wanting to be part of his family obviously didn't sit well with a lot of folks. The show had a lot of positive and meaningful plots and episodes.
