Storyline

After penniless cook Matt Landis marries businessman Victor Pellet's spoiled daughter Alex, they agree to save money for his dream to start his own restaurant by moving in with the Pellets. For 'outsider' Matt, this starts years of aggravation, mainly because Alex's dad is domineering and remains overprotective, with a strong hold over his daughter. Furthermore various habits and attitudes keep clashing. Written by KGF Vissers

Good Comedy

My family and I have been watching this show since it first aired. We really love Alex (Bonnie Somerville), what a wholesome young talent. She is a first rate actress, and we hope to see more of her in the future. Look out Hollywood, she is the next Sandra Bullock.
