Both Joe and Lou receive the shock of their lives when their kid brother Cliff reveals that he's gay. Humorous situations follow as Joe and Lou alternately try to accept Cliff's homosexuality or cure him of it.Written by
If there be any influential people out there reading this, Put this great series out on DVD!
Never had I enjoyed a show more than this one growing up a young adult in the 80's. Needing positive role models for gay characters, these characters gave me a boost when I needed them most. You grew to care for this family and their crazy friends.Come to think of it, this show was way before its time. Ellen wasn't "out" and Will and Grace was barely thought of.Without this show, who knows if the regular networks would have had the nerve to try.
Showtime should consider running a marathon of episodes or, finally getting them on disc for future generations to enjoy!
