Storyline

A slightly cleaner take-off of "Married with Children" with overstressed father Jack, whose life consists of a lousy job; a law-breaking, sex-starved wife; a skimpily dressing daughter with her eyes on an Ivy League school; an idiot son; and Mr Floppy, the epitome of Jack's raging schizophrenia, physically embodied in the form of a boozing, chain-smoking, perverse stuffed gray rabbit with whom Jack consults for advice in the rabbit's basement playpen, where Jack inevitably secludes himself. Written by Duke, corrected by Kiokya

Greatest show ever!
17 May 2006 | by drivecrasherSee all my reviews

This was one of the greatest t.v. shows of all time. Nikki Cox was brilliant in the show. The father and the sons were very entertaining as well with their wild and crazy antics. I loved every episode. It was very funny for sure. It also had plenty of eye candy. Someone needs to put this show to DVD ASAP. Does anyone have any idea if there are plans to do this? Maybe one day the television gods will come down from the heavens and bless the whole world with this show on DVD sometime within my lifetime. Every day seems like an endless eternity waiting for the day i might finally be able to buy this great television show on DVD. Thank you to anyone who takes the time to read this.
