Flashback Friday-Step By Step (1991-1998)

It’s common these days to see blended families. But what happens when Mom and Dad are in love, but their kids from their previous marriages are like oil and water?

This is the premise of Step By Step (1991-1998).

Frank Lambert (Patrick Duffy) is  a single father with two sons and a daughter. Carol Foster (Suzanne Somers) is a single mother with a son and two daughters. They meet on vacation, fall in love and get married. While they are head over heals for each other, their children are not so head over heels for their new step siblings. Carol’s oldest daughter, Dana (Staci Keanan) is the type A, smart as a whip, headed for Ivy Leagues type. Frank oldest son, J.T. (Brandon Call) loves sports, lounging around and mocking Dana. Adding to this 90’s remix of The Brady Bunch is Cody (Sasha Mitchell), Frank’s nephew who talks like he came straight out of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.

I have fond memories of this show. While it is still a television show, it reflects the reality of being part of a blended family.

I recommend it.
