It's a spin-off series from Married... with Children with two minor characters. In Chicago, Charlie Verducci (Joseph Bologna) is the crass father to good-natured idiot Vinnie (Matt LeBlanc). 16 year old jailbait neighbor Mona Mullins (Joey Lauren Adams) has a crush on Vinnie who gets a job at Rolling Hills country club run by Alixandra Stone (Rita Moreno). Emmet Lefebvre (Leslie Jordan) is a diminutive security guard at the club.

This one came and went real quick. I am a big fan of Married and I don't remember LeBlanc being on the show. Of course, it would be another three years before he's Joey. I think I kinda remember this show. I definitely watched it. I watched every Married episode. The Married kids keep dropping by on this show. There's no way I would miss it even if it's not that good and this is not a good show. Matt LeBlanc has plenty of charisma. Bologna fits the character but I don't think the character is optimized. Joey Lauren Adams is super cute and she could work over time. The big problem is the country club. It's not a good work setting for this show and it looks cheap. If he works at a big country club, the show can't just stay at that one cheap location. He needs to be working behind the bar. There is an overall sense of faltering sitcom energy coming from this jerry-rigged spinoff. I like some of the cast but it's a struggle to make this work.
