Special Features


Editorial Reviews

When Dave and Vicky were growing up, their parents had it easy. Back then, there were no "time-outs," no one had any "boundaries" and their parents had no idea what their kids were really up to. Now Dave and Vicky have teenagers of their own, and anything their kids might even think about doing, Dave and Vicky have already done at least twice. But knowledge isn't power; it's a giant pain as every day is a battle to keep their kids in line. Fifteen-year-old Larry isn't exactly a frequent diner at the 'cool kids' table in the cafeteria, while 16-year-old Hillary is a know-it-all and is just emerging onto the dating scene. Meanwhile, thirteen-year-old Mike is all hormones and video games. Dave and Vicky figure if they can send these three off to college without a police record or kids of their own, they've done their job. This witty, irreverent show goes inside the heads of a modern family through the use of a confessional space where the characters reveal everything they could never actually say to one another.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Funny Underrated Comedy July 20, 2008
This was without a doubt a highly underrated comedy series....but unfortunally, it was so underrated & overlooked that after having it change timeslots various times during the two season that the show was eventually cancelled & I highly doubt that there will be a season 2 DVD set so this is all that we're going to get of this show. This show is about two middle aged adults with teenagers trying to raise them up while dealing with real life situations. This isn't like the other television shows of this nature as this one takes on the issues dead on using dark comedy & takes on real life issues going on in today's society regarding teenagers & adults not only through real life but also through confessionals (ala "Real World"), flashbacks, and flash-fowards. From interracial dating & the race issues involved with it, cyber sex, drugs & alcohol, cosmetic surgery, teenage sex, punishing your kids, the male ego, homosexuality & more. With Dave & Vicky being middleaged parents with their own adult problems along with their kids in Larry who's parents think he's gay & his best friend/neighbor Kenny who actually is gay with a crush on Larry; Hillary the typical sexy teenage daughter who's more into dating than school; Mike is the youngest who's about video games & hormones whenever he's not trying to hustle/blackmail his dad;'s just got the formula for a good comedy & this show is just that. With DVD extras being deleted scenes & confessionals from the cast & crew (right in the same humor as the actual episodes)...I recommend to pick this up as this is probably the last trace of this underrated TV show that you'll see.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greats December 2, 2011
By Spencer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This show is one of the best shows Fox has done. It seems like Fox treats the good shows like they are red-headed step children and lets the garbage stay on the air forever. I will never understand why they do this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, but ... April 12, 2007
By T. Ross
With 2 kids now in their 20s, I have pretty much lived this show in one form or the other. Dave's dry humor and honesty are great. Show's also not afraid to take on issues - teen homosexuality, daughter losing her virginity, etc. Doesn't get overly serious (like Scrubs is starting to do), but gives us a serious insight into controversial issues, while making us laugh at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unfairly underrated August 11, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remember skipping this when it originally aired because I just figured it was some kind of Titus knock off and I never liked Titus to begin with. I can say that I haven't laughed this hard watching a DVD in I can't remember how long. The Gold's are also somewhat unique you do not see a nuclear family on television much anymore. I'm always up for a good excuse to break the 4th wall. I cannot see this show continuing until 2011 but it deserved more then the two seasons it got. If Fox were to release the 2nd season on DVD I know I would buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An AMAZING show BUT! August 31, 2009
I love this show i have watched it since the first episode and i thought it would be on the air for a lot longer then two seasons

This is an amazing show and if you like funny shows you will like it but before you buy it here look around a bit i mean it is like 24 or 26 dollars here. Now i own this season and i bought it at BIG LOTS for 3 DOLLARS BRAND NEW!!!!! so don't buy it here unless you can't find it anywhere else that is cheaper

Where is Season 2?!
Sadly Fox never released Season 2 on DVD. Even worse I don't think the series is (currently) available via any of the streaming services. At least it is not on Hulu, Prime, or Netflix as of today (4/6/13).
