Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Grounded for Life was the indie film version of the family sitcom. Donal Logue, Kevin Corrigan, and Richard Riehle had all done time in plenty of independent productions before making the move to network TV. Sean Finnerty (Logue, The Tao of Steve) is a subway worker and wife Claudia (Megyn Price, Lateline) is a restaurant hostess. Their favorite band is the Ramones. The Staten Island-based couple started having children just out of high school (they’re both 32). They aren't bad parents, but they're still just kids themselves. Aside from 14-year-old Lily (Lynsey Bartilson) and grade schoolers Jimmy (Griffin Frazen) and Henry (Jake Burbage), the Finnertys are joined by Sean's slacker brother, Eddie (Corrigan, Walking and Talking), and old school dad, Walt (Riehle, Office Space). Recurring characters include Brad O'Keefe (Bret Harrison), the boy next door (who harbors a not-so-secret crush on Lily), and Sister Helen (Miriam Flynn), St. Finian's take-no-prisoners principal. Standout episodes include "Jimmy Was Kung Fu Fighting" in which Jimmy makes like a pint-sized Jet Li--in his dreams (Grounded for Life makes frequent use of flashbacks and fantasy sequences)--and the Emmy-nominated "Mrs. Finnerty, You've Got a Lovely Daughter," in which Sean attempts to bribe Sister Helen on Lily's behalf. First year guests include The O.C.'s Adam Brody ("Action Mountain High") and That '70s Show's Danny Masterson ("Baby, You Can't Drive My Car"). Grounded for Life, which began life on Fox before moving to the WB, was created by 3rd Rock veterans Bill Martin and Mike Schiff, featured music by Ween, and was renewed for four more seasons. Fun fact: Every one of the 91 episodes, including the 20 on this collection, is named after a pop song ("In My Room," Devil's Haircut," "Dream On," etc.). --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

RAISING KIDS CAN BE TOUGH. IT’S EVEN HARDER WHEN THEY’RE REALLY RAISING YOU! Donal Logue and Megyn Price star as Sean and Claudia Finnerty, a fun-loving Staten Island couple who were pregnant and married by age 18. Now in their early 30s, they’re stuck raising three headstrong kids while still trying to grow up themselves. Even with the meddling of Sean’s irresponsible brother Eddie (Kevin Corrigan) and judgmental father (Richard Riehle), can three generations of family dysfunction survive everyday life and still stay as cool as they think they are? Lynsey Bartilson, Griffin Frazen, Jake Burbage and Bret Harrison also star in this Emmy®-nominated hit from the executive producers of ROSEANNE

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute, very underated, funny show ;-) January 16, 2006
Format:DVD
I always liked this one. It was quite a funny show whose ratings didn't reflect how good it was. In it's rookie season, it was good, but as each season progressed, I think it got better. My favourite character is Eddie who comes across as a dark, moody, brooding and mysterious guy, who is actually a puppy dog. The kids are great and the parents are fun. What this show does in each and every episode, is have flashbacks. The story lines always have a reason to go back in time and explain how a particular situation occured. The Finnerty's are the fun kind of family we all wish we were a part of. Through all the teasing and fighting, you know they love each other. This is a keeper, and I'm sorry it was cancelled. As I said earlier; ratings don't always proove how good a show can be, and this is a classic example. A terrific sitcom that will keep you laughing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your life isn't complete w/o Grounded for Life February 23, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
In the summer of 2005, we got cable for the first time since we moved into the new house. I had never heard of Grounded for Life, until they started playing it on ABC family. I watched it the first day it was on, and thought it was hilarious! I thought it was so funny that I started watching it every single day. In fact, after all the shows ran through once, i started taping them so i could watch whatever one i wanted to, when i wanted to. I love it! I went over to my friend's house one day and i asked her if we could watch Grounded for Life. She said sure, and she thought it was funny too! She even asked me when it was on the next day so she could watch it again! This show is about Sean, Claudia, their kids, and all the everyday problems and little adventures that they have. Lily, the oldest daughter, is basically 99.9% brat, and .1% not brat. She is just a regular teenager, except screams all the time! Jimmy, the middle child, is becoming a teen and is just trying to get through life. (He's really hot.) Henry, the youngest child, is sooooo funny! My mom says he's a smart allec/brat, but i disagree. Eddie, Sean's brother and the kids' uncle, is also very, very funny. He mooches off of Sean and Claudia, and in like season 5 he ends up living in their basement. Brad is the neighbor kid who is in love with Lily. He also is pretty funny. You don't see much of Brad in the early seasons, but near the end you see him in every episode. Grounded for Life is a great show. You should definatley watch it!!!

This was one of the best family sitcoms on TV. (Hard to find sitcoms on tv anymore) Unfortunately, it was cancelled by 2 networks. Fox cancels everything too soon. The WB replaced it with some stupid Fran Drescher show that bombed and Blue Collar TV (yuk!). You can still catch "Grounded" in re-runs on ABC FAMILY. I Recorded every episode and transfered it to DVD..only to find out it's coming out on dvd.

If you are a fan of "Roseanne", you'll definately enjoy "Grounded for Life". The final season was the best. The daughter Lilly is very funny. My husband says the mom is "HOT".

I'm still surprised the show got cancelled.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!! February 8, 2006
Format:DVD
I was waiting so long for this show to come to DVD. They always underestimated it's comedical genius! This show is so hilariously funny, each character is so fitting, they all work so well together. All topics are great because anyone can relate to their woes and laugh at their answers to all their quarky problems. This show is so funny and unfortunately never got enough of the credit it so deserves. I guarentee you will be laughing your pants off for a long time watching this show. You will also gain a love and respect for each of the actors that appear on this show that you may or may not have seen before! Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest show on TV January 22, 2006
Format:DVD
I recently discovered this show on ABCFamily Channel and it is so funny! My family and I watch it everyday and sometimes rewind each episode and watch the same one over and over. It is truly that good! Every night while we are watching the show, we say, "How did we not know about this show?" and "What were they thinking, taking it off the air?" I can't come up with a favorite character because they are all so unique and fabulous in their own ways. Sean is just funny, and loves to scream. Claudia is such a fun loving and cool mom. Lily is a time bomb. Jimmy is intelligent but does stupid things. Henry, is well, Henry. And Eddie, is the icing on the cake! Trust me, this show is appealing to all age groups and to all senses of humor! Grounded For Life is the BEST!

5.0 out of 5 stars I don't watch the show just to see Jimmy January 2, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
I hadn't ever heard of the show until it started showing on ABC family. (channel 39, 4:00pm, Spokane Washington) It's hilarius!!! Every line I hear, just makes me crack up. I have friends over all the time, and I always make them watch it with me because I can't miss one episode. And, they've learned to like it too. My cousin Melissa, age 12, loves it too! She liked it so much that she watched it at home with her dad, and now he likes it too. My friend Shannon came over once too, and she watched it with me, and told me to call her the next day to remind her to watch it at her house. When I'm on the phone with Nick, I always hold the phone up to the TV so he can hear a line, or two, and he even cracks up a little through the phone. The characters are Sean, Claudia, uncle Eddie, Lily, Jimmy, Henry, and Brad. There's more, but they don't really matter. Jimmy is really, really, REALLY cute!!! And as the seasons go on, he gets really, really, REALLY hot!!!He was supposedy born on October 8, 1987. That would make him 18! So not true...I hope. I love his personality in the show...I wonder if he's like that in person. I love the episode where the Finnerty's get a new TV, and Claudia accidently spills soda in it. She tells Jimmy to do everything he can to keep Sean from watching TV. And after a long day, Sean finally goes to watch TV, and to destract him, Jimmy's like, "Dad, how do you know if you're gay?" That is soooooooo funny, to me anyway. Another episode is when Jimmy goes to the bathroom to shave, for the first time, and there's this girl that he likes at this party that was going on at his house. He's in the bathroom forever, making everyone at the party wait to use the bathroom. He finally gets out, and the girl he likes is there, and he starts talking to her. Read more ›
