Growing Up Fisher Reviews & Ratings

30 minutes

It's not every family that's brought closer together by divorce, but then again, the Fishers aren't exactly typical. Take Mel Fisher, for example. Whether it's chopping down trees, showing his daughter how to drive or playing football with his son, he's never let the fact that he's blind slow him down. Then there's Joyce Fisher, possibly the only mom in Pasadena to smoke a pipe. For her, divorce is like a second coming of age, a chance to be the teen she never was. Just ask '80s-obsessed teenage daughter Katie, whose clothes Joyce is always borrowing (that is, when she's not tagging along with Katie to the mall). At the center of all this is Henry, the Fisher's 11-year-old son. Having always been his dad's eyes, ears and wingman, Henry's less than thrilled when Mel shows up with Elvis, a guide dog... which is also how Henry learns about the pending divorce. Awkward. While reluctant of the changes this "big ball of fur" would bring, it's through the adult Henry's voice-over that we find out his parent's split would "allow all of us to finally discover... who we needed to be."

I thought this was a good show, sorry it got cancelled. Too much competition must have killed this show because it is a good comedy with very likable characters.

Sad it got cancelled. Love Jenna Elfman. I think they should have written it from the beginning as a one season show, though.

The scenario is so often payed out that it's become a cliche, i.e. a truly funny show with just the right meld of writing and acting gets its schedule jerked around which naturally causes ratings to dip and then gets cancelled by the same idiotic network execs who themselves caused it. This show could have easily gone multiple seasons.
