Apparently, the ’80s nostalgia machine is at it again as the first season of My Two Dads hits DVD this week.
Oh Greg Evigan, that is a horrible, horrible sweater.
For those of you who don’t really remember the show*, the plot revolved around two straight guys who discover they are both the potential father of a recently orphaned teenage girl. However, because going the Maury route and taking a DNA test would mess up the wacky TV hijinks, they never discover who the girl’s father is and instead decide to raise her together. For reasons I still do not understand, the cast was rounded out by a kooky judge/landlord and an ex-football player diner owner.
It was a strange show, and most of the cast was never heard from again, but it brought us the bumbling talent of Paul Reiser and that . . . is something.
For a nostalgic blast from the past, you can watch the opening themesong here. It explains the show’s logistics (but does not feature a young Giovanni Ribisi as I would have hoped.)
