Need to Make DVD available!
25 April 2007 | by ginnikinSee all my reviews

When my wife was in labor having our second child, this show came on with Jay Thomas' wife having a baby. It is one of the funniest scripts ever of a couple going through the process of delivering a child. We were watching it before we headed to the hospital that night and I thought I was going to get sick from laughing so hard. The actors did an awesome job of playing upon the contents of the LaMaze bag and how they were to be used to refocus her pain. Jay was so panicked that he couldn't do anything right to her satisfaction. When she made the comment that she needed to squeeze the ball and he reacted to it, I was on the floor in hysterics. I wish I could obtain a copy of this short-lived series because of the ties it has with my now teenage daughter.
