Storyline

"Empty Nest" is set in Miami and tells of the day to day misadventures of a widowed pediatrician named Harry Weston and his two adult daughters, Barbara and Carol, who have come back to live with him after failed marriages. Much of the humor is derived from Barbara and Carol's ongoing attempts, and failure to find the perfect partner, and leave the "nest" once again. There is also their skirt-chasing next door neighbor, Charlie Dietz, and Harry's southern nurse, Laverne Todd, who is unique for her unbelievable Hickory stories.

A pure definition of must-see TV!
22 January 2006 | by Catherine_Grace_ZehSee all my reviews

"EMPTY NEST," is my opinion, is a pure definition of must-see TV! I don't think I've seen every episode, but I still enjoyed it. It's hard to say which episode was my favorite. However, I think it was always funny when a mishap occurred in the hospital. I always laugh at that. As a matter of fact, I think just about every single one of LaVerne's (Park Overall) lines was funny. It would have been nice if Barbara (Kristy McNichol) had stayed with the show throughout its entire run. Everyone always gave a good performance, the production design was spectacular, the costumes were well-designed, and the writing was always very strong. In conclusion, I hope they bring it back on the air for fans of the show to see.
