Vaguely forgotten series that needn't much be remembered
30 May 2001 | by Goon-2See all my reviews

A pre-teen's mother dies, and her daughter ends up living with TWO men the mother had been with. Paul Reiser is the dull, "straight man" and Greg Evigan is the "fun-loving," "funny" character. Stacey Keanan (WEHT?) is the whiny, bratty daughter who has to deal with them.

Typical scenarios involve Reiser and Evigan dealing with Keanan's budding adolescene; Reiser and Evigan trying to date bimbos; Reiser and Evigan ending up in some scrape, having to explain their unusual living situation (two men together? Hmmm.... thinks every guest star), etc.

This show used to air in reruns on the USA network, but has actually been off-air for quite some time now. I'm not exactly pleading with TV Land or Nick at Nite to pick it up any time soon, even though they might for Reiser(who acts an AWFUL lot like his "Mad About You" character) and the "star" it introduced, Giovanni "Vanni" Ribisi, as Keanan's dull friend/ love interest, who wore ugly costumes like short pants and knee socks and since he was obviously undergoing puberty, had an ugly, squeaky voice to match.

He probably mocks "My Two Dads..." if he even remembers it. I wonder how many people do.
