Paul and Jamie Buchman are a recently-married New York City couple. They point out the gentle humor in domesticity and life's everyday situations.
While Paul Reiser had the same actors playing his parents for the entire run of the series, Helen Hunt's Jamie had three pairs of actors playing Theresa and Gus Stemple; Nancy Dussault and Paul Dooley; Penny Fuller and John Karlen; and finally Carol Burnett and Carroll O' Connor.
