Boring and redundant.
23 February 2007 | by insomniac_rodSee all my reviews

Truly a boring, dull, unfunny sitcom. Overall mediocre "comedy" about a bigfoot later renamed Harry that by accident comes to live with the Henderson; an all American family.

Well the show focuses on silly problems / adventures and Harry managing to solve them with a grunt or something like that.

Really, the Harry character does not do anything more than just growls, stupid smiles, or unfunny movements. I wonder why this show got green light on the first place.

Most episodes dealt with people trying to steal Harry from the family and report it to FBI or something. I had the misfortune to catch this show on reruns back in 2004. I'm glad that by these days, it's an obscure show that should keep forgotten.

This is quality at it's lowest and comedy at it's poorest. Heck, you won't even chuckle.
