Sons of Tucson is a family comedy about three brothers who hire a charming, wayward schemer to stand in as their father when their real one goes to prison. What begins as a business relationship evolves into something more complex and compelling: a family unlike any we've ever seen. The three brothers find their dad-for-hire, Ron Snuffkin (Tyler Labine), at the local sporting good store. Ron will be forced to draw on a wide array of skills and a vast bag of tricks as he steps into the patriarch role to take care of the boys of the Gunderson family. Robby Gunderson, 8, is a loose cannon who doesn't respond well to authority; Gary Gunderson, 11, is a bright and street-savvy leader who is every bit the con man his father is; and Brandon Gunderson, 13, is a gentle free spirit who simply goes along for the ride.

A Rip-Off that proves comedy is an art, not a formula
I'm a huge Malcolm in the Middle fan, and am actually amazed that show survived as long as it did, since most shows that are based around children as protagonists have a built-in shelf-life (i.e. they usually don't endure long after the main character has to begin shaving his/her face/legs). But while "MIM" had incredible writing, sharp timing/editing, unique characters and performances and above all a multi-layered sense of comedy that transcended generations (i.e. you could watch it with your kids feeling comfortable they wouldn't "get" certain jokes until they were older) Son's of Tucson had NONE OF THIS. It's evident they poached a couple of MIM's writers and tried to resurrect a formula of 3 embattled yet bonded brothers, but the result was just painful and embarrassing to watch for so many reasons. There's no danger of this ever coming back in syndication (even in Albania) so luckily it will most likely only live on in reviews like these on the internet...and the world is all the richer for it.
