    Baio doesn't do much to elevate the limp material, but he doesn't sink it either.

    Even though Baio and Ubach handle their roles well, neither the comic setups nor the sentimental reconciliations feel like much more than reruns.

    [Scott Baio's] naturally relaxed presence mitigates the show's more hectic leanings.

    A serviceable, nonthreatening family comedy that embraces the illusion that time stopped when Chachi married Joanie.

    Scott Baio is always a fun time on TV. This show is pretty family oriented and in the same vain as his other shows that he has been in. A fun time but nothing intellectual but that is not the point of the show. Full Review »
