Taking its cue from the inauguration of Bill Clinton, Dave's World marked something of a generational shift in the traditional family sitcom. Harry Anderson (Night Court) stars as Dave Barry, the Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist who injects some Baby Boomer angst in his Bombeck-esque Miami newspaper columns that muse on family life in the suburbs. A child of the '60s, he states in the auspicious pilot episode, "Someone has to be the grown-ups. Now, it's our turn." But Barry, whose philosophy is that "life should be fun," is more prone to connecting with his inner child. Dave's World mostly treads familiar ground. Barry's wife, Beth (DeLane Matthews), would like him to be the responsible one for a change (she's a good audience for her husband's comic riffs, but she is given some good jokes as well, as when she says that naming a team the Miami Heat after the city's worst feature is like naming a team the Dallas Book Depositories). They have two sons who are more natural and less precocious than their sitcom brethren. As Barry's friends, Meshach Taylor (Designing Women) and Shadoe Stevens don't bring much to the table, but J. C. Wendel as a Barry coworker has a charming Terri Garr screwball quality. Dave's World's first season took its inspiration directly from Barry's books, Dave Beary's Greatest Hits and Dave Barry Turns 40, which is perhaps why it rings truest. The episodes deftly mix comical situations with "misty-eyed" voice-over reflections from Barry on his blunder years epiphanies. Among the familiar faces who turn up in some of the episodes include Jane Curtin as a bitter guest at the hotel where Dave and Beth hope to share a romantic getaway in "Lost Weekend." The real Dave Barry cameos in "Heat Wave" as a man buying an air conditioner. Southside Johnny fans will regret that his rendition of Billy Joel's "You May Be Right" was not cleared for use on DVD. But Barry's voice comes shining through. Though never a Top Ten series, Dave's World did last four seasons. It's a nice place to revisit. --Donald Liebenson
