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.

I hope is will not be cancelled. It is a funny and truthful sitcom about today’s parent-children relationships and needs to be told.

The “Old Finger” episode had me in tears I was laughing so hard…as for the haters out there just move on to something that suits your “high brow” tastes and lofty opinions. Sometimes silly is exactly what we need after a day of depressing news and the bs that life throws our way. Great cast.

Dads and Brooklyn Nine-Nine were terrible shows complete with 70′s era laugh tracks. Cancel them both

Hope Dads is one of the front runners as the “first new show of the Fall TV season to get canceled”. :-(
