TV show description:
This multi-camera sitcom follows two lifelong best friends who are successful and in their mid-thirties. Their relatively stable lives get turned upside down when their inappropriate and pain-in-the-neck fathers move in with them.

Eli (Seth Green) and Warner (Giovanni Ribisi) are the co-founders of Ghost Child Games, a successful video game company. Warner is married with two kids and a bundle of nerves as he tries to balance his career with his home life. He and Eli came up with the idea for the gaming company while getting stoned in college.

Eli has essentially remained stoned ever since. In contrast to Warner’s seemingly stable life, Eli’s is a bit messier, with brief stabs at self-improvement. He’s a confident guy, but occasionally reveals his lack of morals. Although Warner and Eli are very different, they are still incredibly close. That relationship gets more complicated once their fathers invade their lives.

Warner’s neuroses likely stem from having grown up in a family where fortunes fluctuated wildly from year to year — due to numerous failed get-rich-quick schemes of his father, Crawford (Martin Mull). A self-described businessman and a perpetual optimist, Crawford lives in a world all his own and still firmly believes the next big opportunity is just around the corner. But whatever business savvy he thinks he has, Crawford always seems to sink the deal by putting his foot in his mouth – much to the chagrin of those around him.

Now that Crawford has moved in, Camila (Vanessa Lachey), Warner’s matter-of-fact and beautiful wife, constantly tries to get Warner to confront his father, but Warner can’t seem to find the courage.

Eli’s dad, David (Peter Riegert) is a towering monument to negativity and has spent his life jumping from relationship to relationship. Equal parts cheap and cranky, David relishes disappointment and has always prepared his son for it. After hitting hard times, David turns to Eli, who reluctantly agrees to let his dad move in -– even as he continues to blame David for his own shortcomings, including his inability to settle down.

Suddenly, the two bachelors find themselves in very close quarters, and Eli’s lovelife quickly takes a nosedive with David around. In fact, his longest relationship with a woman remains the one with his housekeeper, Edna (Tonita Castro).

Trying to help both Warner and Eli through their myriad life challenges is Veronica (Brenda Song), their witty VP of Game Development. She’s also the voice of reason who’s never afraid to stand her ground with her bosses.

This show is hilarious… you cannot cancel it either, we have to find out if Eli ends up telling Veronica that he loves her… side note, Veronica is my favorite! ;)

My husband and I love this show and always look forward to it. It would be a real shame if it was cancelled. Its a fresh take on the relationships between fathers and sons. Bad enough that Mob Doctor was taken away. DON’T take away Dads too!

Other than Marvel: Agents of Shield, Dads is the only TV show I live for on Tuesday nights. These are the only two shows I DVR on Tuesday’s(if I am not going to be home). Dads is the one of the best new comedy’s on TV this season. Please do not cancel the show. Seth Green has always been a favorite, but Giovanni reminds me of Bob Newhart with his dry humor look!
This show is the bomb, dope, or whatever word for great is appropriate!

Dads TV show is one of the best comedies to come along since Everybody Loves Raymond.
Dads is the only show that watch on Tuesdays out of the 5 major networks.
After Dads I switch over to either a movie channel or a cable network channel.
Do not cancel Dads. It is a great show and has a great cast that works well together.


Ron Rizzato February 26, 2014 at 6:26 pm

I have watched every episode of Dads and have enjoyed every one of them.
It is one of the funniest shows to come along since Everyone Love Raymond.
Dads is the only network program that I watched on Tuesday nights.
After Dads, I went to a movie channel or another cable network channel.
Do Not Cancel the show. It is good.

I keep leaving comments about Dads and keep hoping someone from the network reads the positive remarks from everyone. Such a funny show – I’ve “dvr’d” them so I can watch them again. “Oldfinger” is one of my favorites but lets face it – they’re ALL excellent. The cast works so well together it’s hard to believe it’s the first (and hopefully not the last) season. Give it a chance – with so much crap on tv trying to be funny it would be sad to lose a show that actually is…
