It was a very entertaining show, funny, and dramatic at times, sweet, witty, full of snappy comebacks and presented us with a lot of the problems kids encounter in life and how two men would handle the situation. The plot is very today. Sort of Full House kind of comedy. The mom passed away and left her teenage daughter with her two best friends and all the situations they go through to raise and deal with a teenager.
Has a great cast Paul Riser, a comedian that makes me laugh anytime, Greg Evigan a great actor that should be recognized and given greater chances, Staci Keanan, very good actress, ( she was Dana in Step By Step ) and Giovanni Ravisi, now an excellent movie actor, among others.
This sitcom deserves 5 stars and a hall of shame of the networks for not given it a chance. We need more quality sitcoms and shows like this that are family oriented, clean and great for the whole family and one that kids today would relate to.
Thank you Shout Studios for finally releasing this long awaited sitcom.
This was one of the shows I grew up with and have always longed for it to come on DVD, or at the very least be repeated on TV sometime.
The company that have decided to release this get a huge thanks from me, and I will be definitely buying on day of release.
It gets 5 stars as even if its the worst transfer in history, it still deserves 5 stars for the effort of releasing this great show.
I just hope its a good as I remember, as its been about 20 years, but even if its not, its still a must buy.
Big thanks to the releasing company!
It wasn't that the mother didn't know who the father was. It's talked about quite a few times over the series (Joey & Michael grew up together), but here is the best explanation IMHO:
Season 1, Disc 2, Episode 1 (Once A Son)
Scene: Everyone is at Joey's art show. The judge is talking with Joey's dad.
Dad: I think it's never too late for a parent to do what's right for his kid. You know, I think you would make a great parent, Margaret.
Judge: Not as good as one particular parent I never had the pleasure of meeting.
Dad: Who's that?
Judge: This woman, who fell in love with two terrific guys. And the guys are both in love with her. Then she dies and she leaves her child to both of them.
Dad: She didn't know who the father was.
Judge: No <smile>. Because she knew that one of the terrific guys was down to earth and the other terrific guy had his sights on the moon & the stars, and between these two guys the kid would get one terrific bringing up.
Personally, I think it's pretty darn wonderful ... that the mother cared enough to make sure her daughter would be well taken care of, and that Michael & Joey changed their lives to make a good life for this young lady. Love is an amazing thing, no matter how you get it. :)
I firmly believe that "My Two Dads" is a family-friendly version of the raunchy adult sitcom "Two and a Half Men." Both shows offer a comical depiction of two grown men raising a child under one roof, and when I recently learned that "Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre wrote several of the episodes for "My Two Dads," it's blaringly obvious that this show from nearly 25 years ago was slightly ahead of its time, yet it was perfectly clean and appropriate for viewers of every age.
The plot was simple, if not slightly absurd, and the title alone may raise more than a few eyebrows with contemporary audiences, but considering the dynamic of the typical sitcoms from the '80's and '90's, it worked just fine (and rest assured that the relationship between the two male characters isn't what you might think it is). Nicole Bradford is a plucky, easygoing 12-year-old who gets left in the care of two single guys--a responsible businessman and a carefree artist--after the untimely death of her mother. Both men are suspected to be her biological father. They are best friends who haven't seen or spoken to each other in years, reuniting only in the event of some unsettling details that their late former girlfriend (yep, she was with both of them around the same time) has included in her will.Read more ›
