  • The story of Dick Preston, a talk show host and later an actor and his wife and children.

    This show was created by Carl Reiner, the genius who wrote and created the gem The Dick Van Dyke show in the 60's.

    In what is basically an updated version of that show, is the story of Dick Preston, his wife Jenny and their three children (although oldest son Lucas is rarely seen).

    Dick is a talk show host in Arizona where he is surrounded by this wacky sister Mike, his best friend and manager Bernie, his wife Carol and a variety of interesting and unpredicatable talk-show guests.

    In the opening show of the series, the Prestons discover that after 10 years, a new baby will be joining them, picking up on the theme of a settled married couple who are suddenly hit with an unexpected surprise.

    The first two years hold the best shows, most of them based on episodes of the former show, but the third year when the Prestons' move from Arizona to California, it looses most of it's flavor, as well as the supporting cast.

    Still the episodes are funny and touched with the magic of Dick Van Dyke, they can't really go wrong. Hope Lange is hideously under used as Dick's wife, Jenny.
