Recalling the best and worst the sitcoms have had to offer, Jones recreates their atmosphere and their times with wisdom and style- paralleling the memory-lane trip is his shrewd and provocative assessment of the sitcoms influence on modern society. From Farther Knows Best to Married....with Children, from the empty calories of The Brady Bunch to the social commentary of All in the Family, Honey, Im Home! is a connoisseurs guide to the sitcom world-where everybody knows your name, and any problem can be solved in twenty-two minutes, plus commercials.
