Loved Jack Warden
10 December 2007 | by villagedianneSee all my reviews

I loved Jack Warden in this series. Sometimes instead of dialog, he would make a sort of grunting sound that would convey doubt or skepticism. It said so much more than words could. I would love to see this again for Warden's character. It made the series interesting and worth watching. He was so much smarter than his educated son. Also I loved when he would do something crazy like stealing a truck saying "What could go wrong?" Something always went wrong. He was attractive to women too. I would have dated him. Did anyone else love this show like I did? My other favorite of his is the character Tiresias in the Woody Allen film, Mighty Aphrodite. It was great hearing him make his pronouncements in everyman mode.
