Sons & Daughters

Show Summary

Sons & Daughters is an ABC sitcom that stars Fred Goss ("Significant Others") in this unique hybrid comedy series that offers a mix of improvisational and scripted humor in an unadulterated look at marriage, raising children and living in close proximity to an extended family. Series creators Goss and Nick Holly borrow from their own middle-American, middle-class upbringings to deliver a very real and relatable modern-day family comedy. At the center of the family dynamic is Cameron (Goss), happily married to his second wife, Liz (Gillian Vigman, "Mad TV"), and the father of three children with her. One of the speed bumps on their road to domestic bliss comes from Cameron's resentful teenaged son from his first marriage who recently moved in and is not adjusting well to life with his father and new step-family. Cameron's life is further complicated by his sister, Sharon (Alison Quinn), and her husband, Don (Jerry Lambert), seemingly happily married with two teenaged children -- yet both in deep denial on several issues, including a current years-long sex drought. Cameron and Sharon's very pretty younger stepsister, Jenna (Amanda Walsh) -- the "it girl" when she was in high school -- had her career plans derailed by becoming a single mom. She continues to be attracted to "bad" boys like Tommy White, AKA Whitey (Greg Pitts), and not to the nice guys -- like Wylie (Desmond Harrington) -- who are attracted to her. The three siblings' parents, Colleen (Dee Wallace) and Wendal (Max Gail), are extremely devoted to their adult children and their grandchildren but, not surprisingly, have some issues of their own. Colleen, a little uptight and impulsively judgmental, both likes and dislikes the safe and comfortable environment that husband Wendal has provided for 25 years. A good guy, Wendal juggles and struggles with the varied relationships he has with his extended family members.

    Can you say "Book of Daniel". Here is yet another show that try’s to cover too many dysfunctional people. If there really is a family out there like this one they need to be shot. Didn’t laugh once. I'm just wondering where the gays come in, or is that Cameron's father's problem to be continued in the next stupid episode.
  • Is there a DVD of the first (and only) season? I just watched the pilot that had been on my tivo for a year and i was laughing out loud. I hate when creative shows get axed. Bring it back!moreless

    The metal-mouth daughter was hilarious, as was the video-shooting son. When the little daughter repeated what her aunt said about jews going to hell, I almost snarfed water out my nose. I haven't seen any episode other than the 1st one, but if they are even half as funny, this show should still be on the air. Is there a DVD of the first (and only) season? I just watched the pilot that had been on my tivo for a year and i was laughing out loud. I hate when creative shows get axed. Bring it back! GEEZ people!moreless
  • This fresh, funny show about the family next door is one of my favorites! It is different from any other show, and it has to come back soon!

    I absolutely love this show! It is hilarious, unique, and I was so happy to watch it two times a night! I have searched the web to see if it is coming back, and I haven\'t found any information that says it is or isn\'t, but I hope it does! It deals with real life issues but makes you laugh about the issues at the same time. It is down to earth, it seems like this family could live next door, but they hilarious! My advise to those you haven\'t seen it, give it a shot, you\'ll love it too!moreless

    It said that future episdoe would be listed, I knew that mean it was possibly going to be cancelled but it sounds like it was, man how stupid. That show was hilarious there wasn't an unlikeable character in the bunch. The partial improve, made the show better and different from the rest. They even had Wojo from Barney Miller. I'm pissed I didn't even know about it until now. They had some great off the cuff remarks which made the show really good. I hope they bring it back, or another network picks it up, because that show was really funny. I had to change to it Bring it back since it was on the air when I orinally wrote this.moreless
  • Sons and Daughters is a show about an extended family that lives close to each other, and follows all of the hilarious problems of each of the members of the family.moreless

    This series was Awesome, I wish ABC would have kept it, I think that as long as you have a family you can relate to this show on some level, everything that happens is crazy and funny, and oddly reaistic. The characters are great and the dialogue is classic, it may not be geared to all ages but it is definately worth checking out. Fred Goss is hilarious, and so are the situations this family is continuously in, once this show comes out on dvd treat yourself and watch all of the episodes, you won\\\'t be disappointed by any means.moreless
