The thing I remember most about this show
19 May 2008 | by crazyinagoodwaySee all my reviews

was the cast AND the set were all recognizable from other places. Max Gail and Cindy Williams were charming together and I'm surprised neither of them went on to better projects. Leah Remini was on this show at a time in her career where she wasn't yet famous, but recognizable, having been on Cheers and Evening Shade. With a cast like this with so many hit shows behind them (Barney Miller, Laverne and Shirley, Cheers...) this show should have done much better than it did. It was cute and humorous, but not unique. And it came along just as the 1980's family sitcom was losing popularity.

The set was the California house from Laverne and Shirley that's now getting used in Two and a Half Men.

I know, I know, this probably isn't the most "useful to you" comment, but things like trying to remember where I saw a staircase before can drive me nuts.
