Archetypal suburban sitcom charting the ups and downs in the life of middle aged couple Terry and June Medford, with plenty of opportunity for Terry to make a fool of himself.
Terry is somewhat bumptious and accident prone (if something can go wrong it will go wrong for Terry) and works in the city doing something unspecified in middle management whilst June is the archetypal harassed housewife. The show was basically a continuation of the sitcom Happy Ever After.
Undeniably safe and sometimes twee Terry and June still offers up plenty of laughs, mainly down to Terry not grasping the right end of the stick and coming unstuck with his grand ideas.
