After penniless cook Matt Landis marries businessman Victor Pellet's spoiled daughter Alex, they agree to save money for his dream to start his own restaurant by moving in with the Pellets. For 'outsider' Matt, this starts years of aggravation, mainly because Alex's dad is domineering and remains overprotective, with a strong hold over his daughter.

Tonight was premiere night and I was actually looking forward to this new comedy on NBC. Jean Smart and Dennis Farina are very funny veterans and two talented newcomers seemed to be primed for success. Unfortunately, there were only moments of clever dialogue interwoven in tired old re-hashed stories with predictable outcomes. All in all, the first two episodes, which were both aired tonight, didn't leave me wanting more. I'll give it a few more shows, however I see this being canceled by the middle of the second season if not sooner unless serious revamps occur.
