Meet Bill and Judy Miller, a toilet salesman and a dental assistant, two high school lovers who turned in their wild lifestyle to get married years ago. Now, as they creep toward middle age, they have to deal with more "everyday" things, such as their three kids: their intelligent and (to Bill's horror) still sexually-unsure son Brian; their typical drama queen daughter Lauren; and their smug, sarcastic six year old, Tina. With Judy's desperate man-hunting sister Linda, Bill's interfering mother Louise, a lesbian couple living next door and other crazy characters around, it's no wonder that Bill and Judy constantly get into strange (and oft-hilarious) misadventures as they try to prove that they're not too old to have fun. Along the way, they always end up showing that they "still" love each other, no matter what.Written by
Mark Addy would often call up Jami Gertz's mother to learn how to say certain words with a Midwest accent since Gertz's mother is from Chicago. Since Addy is from England, he had to be careful with certain words that were easy to slip back into his English accent. See more »

Still Standing is one of the better sitcoms of its time. It has many laughs, good characters (except one, which I'll get to in a minute), good stories, and good heart. It needed at least ten seasons, there are many more adventures that could have been told.
The only part I don't like about this show is Judy's worthless, annoying sister Linda. She's a character that's not needed, but the writers must have felt they needed three adults in the main cast so they wrote her in. Linda is a terrible character, always whining, sad, alone, bitching about men or what not. The only good part about her is she is usually the butt of Bill's jokes.
This is a show with role reversal between parents and their kids. Lauren and Brian seem to have their act together, and their parents get to learn more from them than vice versa.
This is probably one of the most underrated shows out there. It's not available commercially on DVD, but I found one online that a private seller recorded off the TV. Glad to have it in my collection.
