Storyline

When Dave and Vicky were growing up, their parents had it easy. Back then, there were no "time-outs," no one had any "boundaries" and their parents had no idea what their kids were really up to. Now Dave and Vicky have teenagers of their own, and anything their kids might even think about doing, Dave and Vicky have already done at least twice. But knowledge isn't power, it's a giant pain as every day is a battle to keep their kids in line. Fifteen-year-old Larry isn't exactly a frequent diner at the 'cool kids' table in the cafeteria, while 16-year-old Hillary is a know-it-all and is just emerging onto the dating scene. Meanwhile, thirteen-year-old Mike is all hormones and video games. Dave and Vicky figure if they can send these three off to college without a police record or kids of their own, they've done their job. This witty, irreverent show goes inside the heads of a modern family through the use of a confessional space where the characters reveal everything they could never ... Written by DesertShark000

Quotes

Dave: When I was a kid growing up, my father's philosophy was "Do as I say, not as I do." Well, when I became a parent, I swore I would do better with my kids. So my philosophy is, "Do as I say - not as I hope you don't know I do."

Awesome show!!
11 December 2005 | by PineappleCutieSee all my reviews

I really like this show. I can't possibly understand why people are saying it's 'racist' and 'offensive', but they think "family guy" and "American Dad" aren't.

They both have the same type of humour except on family guy, it can be more exaggerated, since it is a cartoon. This show is very funny in my opinion. It's very different than other shows because they choose to take the show way differently than any sitcom has ever chosen to go.

The laugh tracks I found to be very annoying, and would be something that Fox should really try to remove, especially when they are heard after or right before someone finishes saying something that is "funny". The moments in the show when they make it like a character commentary type thing is very funny. They put their true feelings which makes the whole show interesting, funny and different. I would rate this show about an 8/10
