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

Goodbye 30 Minutes of My Sunday Night
12 September 2005 | by Schmayla_goes_to_HollywoodSee all my reviews

Another FOX comedy. But the question is, does it have potential? Nowadays, most comedies don't. This show had some laughs, but some snickers. The fake laugh track didn't help much, it just made me not want to laugh. The problem with this show was that all the jokes were rooted in racism, homosexuality, and sex in general. After I watched this show, I watched an episode of "Everybody Loves Raymond." This show had a different approach to comedy, without the racism and sex.

The one thing I did like about this show was how the audience could get into the character's heads. The mention of Mary Tyler Moore was funny, but not much after that.

If this show isn't canceled, the NAACP and GLAAD will be all over it.

And what is this world coming to if a boy is labeled "gay" for liking musicals? In the mean time... let's hope we can find a comedy like "Raymond" or "Friends," that might actually last longer than a year, if that.
