This dull series profiles two rather immature men living together for an undisclosed period of time. We are to assume that they are both divorced or widowed, since each has one or two spawn in tow. The acting features Barry Bostwick trying to eke out what a TV dad would do on Friday night on ABC when confronted by the domestic problems encountered in such a living arrangement. Sadly, Bostwick's quirkiness is subordinated to the series' penchant for mediocrity. ABC knew they had winners with Full House and Perfect Strangers, at least in the ever-disappointing 'family night' market, but Dads was another one-season effort attempting to fill the gaps between the more popular attractions. All this, and the opening credits purport this ostensible comedy series as a maudlin, sentimental piece of flotsam in the cesspool of prime-time muck.
