Series: Grounded For Life
Grounded For Life is a 2001 sitcom
. The Dom Com
starred Donal Logue
and Megyn Price as Sean and Claudia Finnerty, an Irish American couple who lived in Staten Island, New York, while raising their three kids, Lily (Lynsey Bartilson), Jimmy (Griffin Frazen), and Henry (Jake Burbage) and dealing with Sean's shady & eccentric younger brother Eddie (Kevin Corrigan). The show also starred Richard Riehle as Sean & Eddie's father Walt for the first two seasons (Recurring otherwise), and Bret Harrison as next door neighbour Brad O'Keefe from season 3 onwards (Recurring otherwise). The show heavily featured cutaways, but unlike Scrubs
or Family Guy
, the cutaways were frequently used to show flashbacks to events that had previously taken place off camera & these flashbacks would frequently be revisited to show the events from another perspective. In other words, the flashbacks were like the ones from Titus
, only Titus
also had some What If?
scenarios and scenarios shown through a Magical Security Cam
("Dad Cam," "Minimum Wage Cam," "NASCAR Cam," etc) along with the flashback ones.
It lasted 5 seasons with 95 episodes.
