This is an excellent American family sitcom and the series remains fresh no matter how many times I watch it. It is brilliantly scripted and produced, and the interaction within the family is delivered with great comic timing by all concerned. House dad Paul (John Ritter) is overprotective of his teenage daughters, particularly the pretty but self obsessed Bridget (Kaley Cuoco), and also the more grounded, but often surprising, Kerry (Amy Davidson). This all leads to some hilarious situations with Paul trying to restrict and control where they go and who they date, hence the 8 Simple Rules for dating my daughter. While this is going on, mischievous son Rory (Martin Spanjers), who can do little wrong in Paul's eyes, is often stirring things up, to his, and our, amusement. Working mum Cate is the arbiter and voice of reason, beautifully portrayed by Katey Sagal.
I hope the later series, including those featuring James Garner and David Spade, also get released in Region 2 format. They are equally as funny, and those immediately after John Ritter's sad death in 2003 are genuinely moving as well.
