Storyline

Sons of Tucson is a family comedy about three brothers who hire a charming, wayward schemer to stand in as their father when their real one goes to prison. What begins as a business relationship evolves into something more complex and compelling: a family unlike any we've ever seen. The three brothers find their dad-for-hire, Ron Snuffkin (Tyler Labine), at the local sporting good store. Ron will be forced to draw on a wide array of skills and a vast bag of tricks as he steps into the patriarch role to take care of the boys of the Gunderson family. Robby Gunderson, 8, is a loose cannon who doesn't respond well to authority; Gary Gunderson, 11, is a bright and street-savvy leader who is every bit the con man his father is; and Brandon Gunderson, 13, is a gentle free spirit who simply goes along for the ride. Maggie Morales (Natalie Martinez), Robby's second-grade teacher and the object of Ron's affection, might just be the only stable figure in the lives of this quirky quartet. While ...

Sons of Tucson

This show is refreshingly hilarious. A dad for hire is a great concept with excellent potential for development.It is the future of the modern day family.

Regardless a few consider the boys on Sons of Tucson to be obnoxious and precocious, I believe they are no different from children on other shows. Honestly the days of Brady bunch and the Cosby kids are long gone. Even children in real life are like that nowadays.

A couple of episodes like family album and kisses and beads are below my expectations. Nevertheless, the show had potential (Now I have to use the past tense!). I enjoyed the feisty exchange between Angela and Ron very much. The dialogs are well-written.Kudos to writers. And Sarayu is super. No doubt, hands down, she is a winner.

It is sad that the network did not care to give it a fair chance.

P.S.: After watching all the episodes, I have to say this. I am a big fan of Sarayu. She has bright future. Looking forward to seeing more of Sarayu.
