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

Not bad, but can the joke last?
28 September 2002 | by sittlerSee all my reviews

I caught the series premiere of this show and I have to admit it wasn't too bad. I'm just wondering if the over-used Mike Stivic-Archie Bunker dynamic can survive. In any event, it's worth a shot to give this show a chance, especially when Dennis Farina is on-board.
