Storyline

Sons of Tucson is a family comedy about three brothers who hire a charming, wayward schemer to stand in as their father when their real one goes to prison. What begins as a business relationship evolves into something more complex and compelling: a family unlike any we've ever seen. The three brothers find their dad-for-hire, Ron Snuffkin (Tyler Labine), at the local sporting good store. Ron will be forced to draw on a wide array of skills and a vast bag of tricks as he steps into the patriarch role to take care of the boys of the Gunderson family. Robby Gunderson, 8, is a loose cannon who doesn't respond well to authority; Gary Gunderson, 11, is a bright and street-savvy leader who is every bit the con man his father is; and Brandon Gunderson, 13, is a gentle free spirit who simply goes along for the ride. Maggie Morales (Natalie Martinez), Robby's second-grade teacher and the object of Ron's affection, might just be the only stable figure in the lives of this quirky quartet. While ...

wild irreverent hijinx
17 January 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Gary, Brandon, and Robby Gunderson are brothers who traveled from Jersey to live in an investment home in Tucson, Arizona after their banker father was sent to prison. Ron Snuffkin (Tyler Labine) is a homeless slacker working at a sports equipment store. The boys hire him to pretend to be their father and avoid child services. It starts as a $200 job for a hour-long school meeting but soon becomes a deal for $300 a week and a place to stay. The boys stick Ron in the backyard tool shed. Glenn is Ron's longtime friend and Glenn's bossy wife Angela intends to keep them apart.

It's a lot of wild irreverent hijinx. Labine has always played this brash slacker slob type. This show is the embodiment of Labine's persona. The three boys deliver specific characters who bring chaos into this unusual family. This was canceled after four episodes with nine more in total. One of the things that early episodes missed is the heart. The anger and chaos can overwhelm the show. On a minor note, this show is missing a main female character to balance out the show. It has a few laughs but the audience was never big enough.
