Pilot pretty much goes like this: Chris comes over to babysit the two kids, goes to convenience store to visit semi heavyset friend, store gets robbed, Daryl is inside one of those vending machines/games with the robot arms that's supposed to grab a stuffed animal...they escape through the sewers (can't remember exactly how) have to run up a little ramp and eventually make their way back home, safe and sound. I remember watching this repeatedly when I was eight (I had taped it because it aired one night before Tracey Ullman) Reasons why I don't think this show would've worked:

1. Writers would've had to keep coming up with reasons for the parents to be gone for an entire evening. 2. Writers would've had to keep thinking of "adventures" for Chris and the kids (and I assume Daryl as well as Chris's best friend) to get into. 3. Can't exactly re-use anything but the living room set (unless a lot of action goes on in the convenience store...or, I guess, the sewer?). 4. This seemed brilliant when I was a kid, probably would seem ridiculous if I watched it now.

Still...would've been interesting to see how it might've gone.
