Storyline

Yes, Dear is a comedy about two young couples and their outrageously contrasting views on parenting. First-time parents Greg and Kim Warner struggle daily to become perfect at the job. Kim is a neurotic stay-at-home mother, and although her husband Greg is a success in his career, his more-difficult job is keeping his wife calm as they raise their year-old son Sam. While Kim is determined to be the perfect mother and perfect wife and to raise the perfect son, her sister, Christine Hughes, a very down-to-earth mother of four-year-old Dominic and one-year-old Logan, continually reminds her that life will never be perfect. Christine's husband Jimmy is employed as a security guard and unconcerned about living in Kim and Greg's guest house and feels compelled to share with his brother-in-law his philosophy about being a husband and father while still remaining a man.

Trivia

In the daydream sequence where Greg contemplates the benefits of having new neighbors (guest stars Shelley Long and Alan Thicke), Long appears out of nowhere with a beer and Greg says, "That was fast," to which Long replies, "I used to work in a bar," which was an obvious reference to her stint on Cheers (1982).

Classic Type-A vs. Type-B conflict
19 July 2003 | by budikavlanSee all my reviews

I honestly can't figure out why the critics are not only disparaging of this show, but actually aggressively hostile toward it. I would be the last person to claim "Yes, Dear" is a classic of television comedy, but it is a consistently funny show, with a very simple, archetypal conflict. I get regular laughs from "Yes, Dear," regularly trashed by critics, while I've never laughed a single time at "Everybody Loves Raymond," which critics slavishly promote. YD is about a pair of couples, two sisters and their husbands, who live together in Los Angeles. The older sister and her husband are lazy, irresponsible slobs who live in the guest house of the younger sister and her husband, who are fastidious to the point of neurosis. Most of the comedy derives from this dichotomy. The husbands work for a movie studio (another source of laughs), and both couples have children. All three sets of grandparents are played by familiar comedic character actors and show up several times each season. Obviously, personal taste governs what one watches on television (something critics have generally forgotten), but if ever a show has gotten a raw deal from the critics, "Yes, Dear" is the one.
