Trivia

Amanda Seyfried said in an interview she was watching the show with her parents and freaked out when her sex scene came up. "'I was sitting there watching and all of a sudden, it cut to a scene where two people are having sex, and it's me! Having sex! I just thought, 'No, no, no!' It was so much more graphic than I remembered. I was horrified." See more »

Goofs

Barb has a list of everyone's birthdays and social security numbers. However, in some episodes the birth years listed do not match the ages given for the characters. Nikki and Margene's birthdays are actually the birthdays of the actresses playing them. The birth year given for Barb would make her the same age as Nikki, but she is clearly portrayed as being about 10 years older. See more »

User Reviews

Watch the show!
4 July 2020 | by johan-naderSee all my reviews

Although I am 35 and couldn't care less about "appropriate shows for the family," I loved this series and I still do. Of course there are life lessons in every episode, including to handle three women, but I hope that most adults have enough brains to have learned that already! Yes, this dramatic show has great acting and beautiful stories to hold adult interest as well as entertain and educate men juggling more than one woman. My sole disappointment was the show's selection to play the older daughter character. Sarah is pretty and like Nicolette should have shown some skin and flaunted her beautiful body. Nicolette does in on e episode because the producers know men want to see nature, but that is it. Sarah's husband could have been more of an alpha male if he managed to get her. Instead, he's a goony-looking goof ball who seems like some kind of limp noodle. (OUCH!) lol.... Anyhoo, JUST WATCH THIS SHOW!
