A retired police officer is on a fresh career path as he rises to the challenge of being a newly single dad. His kids are grateful to him for making sure they're okay, but decide it's time for him to get out of the house, so they turn to Vanessa (Leah Remini), his former police partner, for help.
I've read a lot of reviews online that don't particularly like the show. It's been labeled as a generic, recycled version of "Cheers." I say...so what? Cheers was a good show. There's so much crap on TV these days, so it's nice to have a show that hearkens back to the old days. You might not fall out of your seat laughing at the jokes on this show, but they'll give you a good chuckle. The plot may be somewhat predictable, but it's still pretty entertaining.
It's like my mom said a few weeks ago...you don't watch Dumb and Dumber to be intellectually stimulated, you don't go see Magic Mike for some life-changing revelation, and you don't watch Sullivan & Son and expect to be amazed. You watch all those to be entertained. And they are entertaining.
At any rate, this show is a CRAP TON better than "Men at Work," TBS's other original sitcom.
