Matialth Good concept, poorly executed.
ShangLuda Admirable film.
Chirphymium It's entirely possible that sending the audience out feeling lousy was intentional
Roman Sampson One of the most extraordinary films you will see this year. Take that as you want.
drhazeem This show is just great... It was great with John Ritter... Then when John Ritter passed.... It was just as great in a different way.. It was a family grieving... Watching the dynamic with the mother and he teen daughters, with the more emotionally balanced son... It just worked. When they brought the grandfather onto the show I kind of thought... hmmm.... This is actually good short term... Then they brought on David Spade.... Don't get me wrong... I don't hate David Space. It just really shifted the dynamic and it became all about him. The family was trying to get over a death and you throw in this person that really just brought more problems and couldn't really grieve with them in the same way... It was more the chemistry change though. He just didn't work. I wish they had not added him. I found my self hating the show with him on it.
Maniac-9 8 Simple Rules for the first season had a lot of promise of being a really good show that they could've easily milked out about 5-7 seasons from the show. But unfortunately the demise of John Ritter put the show in a situation where it would be impossible to succeed.I'll give them credit they made a valiant effort trying to keep the show going. For them it was good luck they had the talented Katey Sagal in the wife role who could be bumped up to the #1 parent role. If they had just an average actress in that role they wouldn't even have been able to get through season 3.As much as they tried to keep the show going the show just wasn't the same without Ritter it just changed the dynamic of the show too much. It was supposed to be about a dad losing his mind trying to keep his daughters under control. But once Ritter passed away they replaced him with James Garner as the grandpa and David Spade as the nephew to Katey's character.
mattkratz This was a marvelously funny comedy with a great cast. John Ritter and Katey Sagal were perfectly cast as the parents, and the kids were great too. Kaley Cuoco was a good choice to play Bridget, who was sort of a toned-down version of Kelly Bundy from Married with Children. The writing and performances were both first-rate.Sadly, John Ritter died during the series, and it put a damper on things. They had to scramble to change the show and bring in more cast members, and it was obviously an uncomfortable situation, but they handled it well. James Garner was a good addition. It could have lasted longer had Ritter lived.I especially loved it when they brought in Ed O'Neill in a guest spot. That was great.*** out of ****
shop_til_ya_drop123 Ya. That is what I think. Sure it was still a great show with John in it but I personally think that it is way better without.I love having C.J. and Grandpa living at the house because they are so funny together.When John was still around I really didn't laugh as much as I do now.It is too bad that no more are being made. ( I don't think...) because I would love to see some new material.My favorite character must be Rory. poor Rory is almost always left out. It is always about Bridget or Carrie. WHAT ABOUT RORY!!!??? Honestly this is a great show and to any one who has never watched it you must go and watch it. I almost guarantee you will laugh. well even chuckle.
