Tv Season Info

The Nielsens are a fictional 1950s TV family who travel via a `Sitcom Relocation Program' to 1991. Like the '50s shows it spoofs, the series features a wholesome family...one with a gizmo to occasionally restore its peaceful black-and-white past life when the present one grates. Its programming concept was even more original, marking the first time a cable channel produced a series for a major network.

Critic Reviews for Hi Honey, I'm Home: Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (7)

The hokey setup is exploited with such exuberant, campy glee by the writers and cast that it's hard not to crack up. The nuttiness and high spirits are infectious. Hi Honey isn't just funny, it's fun.

The trouble is, '90s sitcom reality is no more real than the '50s kind. And while farcical spoofing of both eras is the obvious intent of "Hi Honey, I'm Home," the result seems more like a cynical, simplistic insult to both then and now.

Instead of going for the type of broad laughs and wicked satire that the format and premise would seem to allow, it falls back on discouraging sitcom staples. It`s like a long ''Saturday Night Live'' skit that isn`t working.

Though Hi Honey, I'm Home misfires almost as often as it hits (too bad ABC didn't pass along its Rolodex of writers), the originality of its premise goes a long way.

June 10, 2019 | Full Review…

The show's initially amusing sitcom caricatures are so broadly written that they wear thin before the first episode has ended.

June 10, 2019 | Full Review…

The show may indeed seem dumb on the surface, but so do most sitcoms, and most have nothing but a surface. At least here the foolishness is rather endearing, with a beguilingly wistful subtext underneath.
