  • Great pilot episode, full of laughs.

    Paul Hennessey must now get use to his wife Cate working the morning shift at the hospital. He now has to get his 3 children off to school each day, and deal with them after school.

    He feels bad for Bridget after watching her being rejected by Kyle. That soon changes when he learns that she already has a date, and was herself looking for something better.

    Paul helps out Kerry who feels she isn\'t pretty.
    Rory is their younger son in junior high who is enjoying his dads rough day.

    This was a very funny pilot. I think it introduced the family well.
