Terrific
10 September 2002 | by budikavlanSee all my reviews

Sitcom about a bumptious Irish family, stirred up by the return home of the flamboyant daughter. She moves back in with her crusty father, conservative older brother, and his children. His son is a priest and his daughter is a shy Catholic High School student. The show was consistently funny and the performances, led by Barnard Hughes as the patriarch and Christine Ebersole as Kit were dead on. Ebersole's flashy, sarcastic persona is perfect for a sitcom; it's a shame this didn't last longer.
