Summary of Season 1 (2004) - 4 discs

Quipster Rodney Carrington stars as title character Rodney Hamilton, a blue-collar family man with a lovely wife (Jennifer Aspen), two sons, no patience for stupidity and a burning desire to be a stand-up comic instead of a 9-to-5 working schmo. Bolstered by the support of the rest of the Hamilton clan, the aspiring funnyman tries to get his dream career off the launching pad. Mac Davis has a recurring role as Rodney's grating father-in-law.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the series' adult characters bicker and have trite, insincere miscommunications. They also forgive each other and care tremendously for their kids -- despite the normal ups and downs of a middle class American family, nothing seems to interfere with this strong familial bond. There's no violence (except occasional accidental falls and sibling squabbles), but the language is a bit iffy, as are the sexual innuendos.

Sexual Content

References made between adults as jokes and in arguments: "you pushed up your boobs," "should have seen me in the thong," etc.


Not applicable


Mild: "crap," "boobs," "damn."

Social Behavior

The family unit is strong. They may have arguments or miscommunications, but they always come together in the end. Some typical family sitcom gender stereotyping, and the cast isn't at all diverse.
