8 Simple Rules

Legendary sitcom stars John Ritter and Katey Sagal team up in 8 Simple Rules, ABC's hit family comedy that is laugh-out-loud funny. "If you make my daughters cry, I'll make you cry." That's the rallying cry of Paul Hennessy. A little rusty in the parenting department, Paul is forced to meet fatherhood head-on when his wife Cate returns to work. Two teenage daughters and a wisecracking son make Paul's new situation daunting but never dull.

I never watched this show back in the day although I was a fan of John Ritter. I've started watching it 20 years later and it is great. In one way it's really sad to know that his death left too much of a hole in the show for it to really succeed without him but in another way, it feels right.

This episode was well done considering what everyone had to deal with.

The sad thing was this would be the last time John Ritter would get to do a Halloween episode.
