Storyline

Frank Lambert is a construction worker and a single father of 3 kids: J.T., Alicia "Al", and Brendan. Carol Foster, a beautician, also has 3 children: Dana, Karen, and Mark. After Frank and Carol run into each other on vacation and spontaneously get married, they and their children (who appeared to have known and hated each other) have to learn to live together and love each other. It's not easy, but they are trying to do this step by step. Written by Boris Shafir <shafir@hsi.com>

...is the perfect word to describe a serie seductive for each ingredient, from performances to plot. and it is not surprising. because a large family, kids and a couple not far by problems but solving them in inspired ways are predictable, seductive and ...the best choice. after The Man from Atlantis and Bobby Ewing, Patrick Duffy gives a character iresistible for the contrast with the other steps of career. and he does a real good job. sure, the theme is too familiar, but that challenge is the lead virtue of serie - to propose the right formula for a story well known. and, it wins.
