Storyline

During his honeymoon, the irrepressible Larry Burton is dragged off into the jungle by a large-sized male baboon and is presumed dead - eaten by apes. However, defying all odds, Larry survives and, after many comic-strip-type adventures, returns home to re-establish himself as head of the household - little realising that his wife, Sally, has married the staid and conservative Boyd Flatt during the intervening ten years, and that she is now the mother of a bright and lively nine year old daughter. Larry's return home causes considerable upheaval and consternation for the family - not least being his subsequent attempts to woo a reluctant Gabriella, his former sister-in-law, who had taken a distinct dislike to him prior to his disappearance and is still definitely opposed to the idea of getting to know Larry on a more intimate basis.

Show with good potential, but was never given a chance
30 September 2000 | by Triple PSee all my reviews

This had potential to be a classic 90s comedy show, however, it wasn't given enough time. I watched all the episodes that were out (there was only 3 in total I believe), and thought they were all really funny. It's a shame that Bronson Pinchot hasn't had much of a career since this show, because he truly was a funny guy. As good as it was, it didn't get the reaction Perfect Strangers did, so maybe that's why the network didn't give this much of a chance.
