Paul Hennessy is going to work in his living room while his wife, Cate, goes back to working as a nurse. Being at home all the time, Paul is now the one who takes care of his two daughters, Bridget and Kerry, and his son, Rory. During all of season one, we see Paul's parenting skills at work. Later in the season finale, Paul finds a pregnancy test in the trash can, and thinks that it's either Bridget or Kerry's, when he finds out that it is actually Cate's.
Season Two: In the first episode of season two, Cate awaits to find out whether she is pregnant or not....
The debate that still goes on today is if 8 Simple Rules should have been cancelled right after the "Goodbye" episode.
In my opinion, I think it was the right decision to keep the show going because 8 Simple Rules is my absolute favorite show. Even though the death of John Ritter was really sad, and the show was never really as funny when he was gone, but to me, the show wasn't terrible with the add of James Garner and David Spade.
What do you think? Should the show have ended with the "Goodbye" episode, or have kept' going, like it did?
8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenager Daughter will be one of those hidden gems of television; a fantastic show with poignant stories that, unfortunately, will never be discovered by most television viewers. I have never been a big fan of sitcoms with laugh tracks but this quickly become one of the few shows that made me laugh heartedly along.
Then came the death of John Ritter.
I don't believe I have ever cried as much as when I watched the episode "Goodbye", the tragic episode that incorporated Ritter's untimely death into the Hennessy family. It was so emotionally...
