Synopsis

Jim is a macho Everyman who challenges his feisty wife, Cheryl, with his stubborn manliness but contagious charm.

Tagging along with this duo of happily married opposites are their three precocious kids, Ruby, Gracie and Kyle.

A success at his construction business and the family breadwinner at home, Jim feeds his other passion - blues music - playing with his six-man garage band.

Everything is perfect for Jim, if it wasn't for the messy situations he gets himself into and his laziness, which often makes him search for alternative ways of doing things with less effort.

Of course, having his wife's siblings hanging out at his house all the time is no help. While Andy might be one of his best friends, Dana often teams up with Cheryl against Jim.

He keeps Cheryl in turmoil with his boyish bravado and ever willful antics, but their underlying love guarantees that they are in their marriage for keeps.
