One Of The Many Shows That Wasn't Given A Chance

"Those Nielsen Ratings that have never and will never reflect what the viewers are watching, and the networks who lead themselves by them, we never see good shows get a fair chance or a chance at all. This is one of those shows. My Two Dads tought values and morals. Because this were 2 men living together, some people couldn't take it for what it was, missunderstood the message and couldn't accept it.
It was a very entertaining show, funny, and dramatic at times, sweet, witty, full of snappy comebacks and presented us with a lot of the problems kids encounter in life and how two men would handle the situation. The plot is very today. Sort of Full House kind of comedy. The mom passed away and left her teenage daughter with her two best friends and all the situations they go through to raise and deal with a teenager.
Has a great cast Paul Riser, a comedian that makes me laugh anytime, Greg Evigan a great actor that should be recognized and given greater chances, Staci Keanan, very good actress, ( she was Dana in Step By Step ) and Giovanni Ravisi, now an excellent movie actor, among others.
This sitcom deserves 5 stars and a hall of shame of the networks for not given it a chance. We need more quality sitcoms and shows like this that are family oriented, clean and great for the whole family and one that kids today would relate to.
Thank you Shout Studios for finally releasing this long awaited sitcom."
Superb News, made my month, and probably year too.

"Just got the email from TVshowsonDVD that My Two Dads is being released on DVD in March 2009.
This was one of the shows I grew up with and have always longed for it to come on DVD, or at the very least be repeated on TV sometime.
The company that have decided to release this get a huge thanks from me, and I will be definitely buying on day of release.
It gets 5 stars as even if its the worst transfer in history, it still deserves 5 stars for the effort of releasing this great show.
I just hope its a good as I remember, as its been about 20 years, but even if its not, its still a must buy.
Big thanks to the releasing company!"
Shout Factory Rules!

"All the great things everyone else has said is true. I waited years to see this show again. I think Shout Factory gets it! We love this stuff-we crave this stuff! Classy comedy and the comebacks and quick one liners were great-yes even for the year 2009! These stars were so likable and that's important in a sitcom. Gee, Paul Riser should be so greatful. He went on to Mad about You. Another funny show. And it lasted quite awhile, so where was he in the commentary??? Good to see Greg and Staci are still humble! Now listen, Shout Factory, to all our responses and pleas! Give us the rest of the seasons! Everyone else agree????"
Great Show, Poor Transfer

"I've waited for this show for years - It's pretty good. I used to watch this show growing up, and being older, it's fresh from the parent's perspective. One thing I would caution is that the transfers are not what I'd expect from Shout Factory. The credits are missing from one episode, one is completely missing the music cues, and I think the laugh track, while some still sport the NBC logo. Shout Factory was on the top of my list, along with BCI/Eclipse as releasing above average sets, esp. after "The Electric Company" but this one was clearly rushed. But other than that, from a show enjoyment point of view, I am very very happy w/this set!"
