This comical TV series made in the ‘90s of a modern couple’s life in New York City is funny, covering their quarreling marriage, the friends who butt in and crazy families that come with them, and coming together again.  The series makes fun not only modern life, but stereotypes of marriage and various family members (specially the crazy mothers), in all a funny and heart warming series.  Watching this series you are surprised by the sheer number of guest stars that made their way to make an appearance this series, include supers-stars like Mel Brooks, Carol Burnett, Kevin Bacon, Bruce Willis and many more...
