Storyline

When Big Guy Beck dies, the heirs to his estate are given a stipulation (via a pre-recorded video will) before they inherit his wealth. They have to live with Big Guy's illegitimate son, Wild Bill Westchester and his wife Bootsie, and they have to learn to accept the Westchesters as their own family. Of course, this does not bode well with the snooty Becks, and petty rivalries and catfights soon ensue in this sitcom spoof of '80s primetime dramas.

One of the funniest series I have ever seen. A fresh and new comedy that captured me. Wonderful stars.
21 June 2001 | by cecesvieSee all my reviews

I saw this series some time ago and absolutely loved it. I believe it ended with the untimely death of Slim Pickens. I would love to see this in reruns or as rentals. If they found the right actors and resurrected this, I would definitely tune in.
