Storyline

Al Royal and his wife Victoria had just settled down to retire when their daughter Elizabeth, newly divorced from a man that Al had always hated, moved back home with her three children, Curtis, Kim, and Hillary. Life became turbulent for Al and Victoria, who had worked so hard to "get their children out of the house." Stories revolve around Al and his grandkids, and Victoria and Elizabeth rebuilding their mother/daughter relationship. In the fall of 1991, series star Redd Foxx collapsed and died after the show had completed only seven episodes. After a brief hiatus, the show returned in May 1992 with Jackee ("227") added to the cast as Ruth, the sexy eldest daughter of Al and Victoria, who had returned home. Unable to capture the ratings success of its initial run, the show quietly expired that spring. Written by Michael Cheek

Would have been good.
8 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

Had Redd Foxx not died a few months after the series premiered, I felt it would have been successful. Foxx and Della Reese had great chemistry together as a retired postal worker and his wife who are forced to look after their grandchildren, instead of enjoying retirement. Sadly after Foxx's death it was canceled after only one season.
