Here's a quote: "Dad, you're an idiot. A: Coming to the breakfast table wearing pajamas and black socks? B: Asking my oldest daughter if that guy I saw her talking to yesterday at school was her boyfriend? Okay, pencils down. Actually it was a trick question. The answer is all of the above.
Now do you know how many times I called my father an idiot? Because I feared him. Back then we didn't share our deep personal feelings, our deepest conversations usually revolved around the tigers bull pen.
But my kids, I can't get them to shut up! There's not a feeling that my kids are afraid to express over and over and over. And my wife reassures me this is a good thing over and over and over, and she's always right. So do I wish that my kids feared me? Well my house would be quieter, and I'd spend a lot less time in the bathroom, but no. Because I know that whenever they insult me whether it's a "You're an idiot," "You're a geek," or an "I hate you," an "I love you" isn't far behind.
And it's the knowledge that my wife and kids love me that makes it safe for me to wear pajamas and black socks to the breakfast table.

I honestly couldn't believe I just watched a sitcom. Over the next few months I was hooked into my couch on Saturday nights at 7. The show related to me in many ways, and the parents were portrayed perfectly. And above all, the show was funny.
Watching this sitcom I gave others a chance, I now enjoy, "My wife and kids" and "Friends", but there's still some I hate Months later I heard of John Ritter's unexpected death.

It was the first time I had been upset with anyone famous dieing, because I felt I was connected with the show. Now I find it hard to watch the show, and currently the network is showing older episodes with John still in it.
For some reason now it doesn't feel right. And now I honestly think the show should now rest in piece. How ever of course If you have never seen the show I suggest you do.
It is a great show with original comedy. Details Edit. Release date September 17, United States. United States.
