Storyline

Comedy/sitcom that aired on ABC in the early '90s. Seven siblings (the Jerrico family) are left orphaned by a tragic accident. To avoid being split up and put into foster care, the eldest brother, Josh steps up to take care of his brothers and sisters. Problems arise when social services comes to check on the kids, so Josh takes it upon himself to pose as their aunt (in Madea-style drag, of course) to keep the case worker from finding out their secret.

Great show, should've lasted longer
19 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

This show was really a good family comedy, and should have lasted longer. Some people preferred the first season, when the older brother dressed as "Mama J." to keep the family together after losing their parents. Many criticized them for copying Mrs. Doubtfire, but it had a totally different plot and was still funny. It was then pulled off the air from December, 1994; to March, 1995. After that, they changed the plot, saying that Josh (the oldest brother) was granted custody. That was good too. Naturally, that way wasn't as humorous, but was still a good show for the family. It's too bad it didn't last longer. It really would have worked if they hadn't based it on "Mama J." as being the only funny character, as people would have liked it anyway, AND Josh could have continued to dress as her but not as often.
