Grandfathered is a heartwarming family sitcom that aired on Fox from 2015 to 2016. The show revolves around Jimmy Martino (John Stamos), a suave and successful restaurant owner, who finds out that he has a son, Gerald (Josh Peck), from a one-night stand he had decades ago. Gerald is a nerdy, socially awkward millennial who works as a computer programmer. Jimmy's world is turned upside down when he discovers that he is not just a grandfather, but also a father, and he sets out to build a relationship with his newfound son.

The show also features a supporting cast, including Vanessa (Christina Milian), Jimmy's headstrong assistant who occasionally clashes with him; Annelise (Kelly Jenrette), a single mother who is Gerald's coworker and love interest; Sara (Paget Brewster), Jimmy's baby mama and Gerald's mother who re-enters Jimmy's life after many years; and Ken (Ravi Patel), Jimmy's best friend and business partner who has a crush on Sara.

The show explores various themes such as family, love, and relationships. It portrays the challenges of building a relationship with a child you never knew existed, and the struggles of parenting in the modern world. Through its witty humor and heartfelt moments, Grandfathered delivers a message of acceptance and unconditional love.

John Stamos delivers a stellar performance as the charming and charismatic Jimmy Martino, who is forced to confront his own insecurities as he tries to connect with his son. The chemistry between Stamos and Peck is one of the highlights of the show, as their characters initially clash but eventually form a deep bond. Josh Peck, known for his role in Nickelodeon's Drake & Josh, shines as the socially awkward yet lovable Gerald. His portrayal of a millennial struggling to find his way in life is both relatable and entertaining.

The female characters in the show are equally strong and fully realized. Vanessa, played by Christina Milian, is a confident and sassy assistant who serves as a foil to Jimmy's smooth-talking persona. Annelise, played by Kelly Jenrette, is a hard-working single mother who is determined to provide for her son. Paget Brewster's portrayal of Sara, the mother of Jimmy's child, is nuanced and complex, adding depth to the show's storyline. Ravi Patel's character Ken provides comic relief with his quirky and often hilarious antics.

The show's setting, a restaurant called Jimmy's, serves as a backdrop for much of the show's action. Viewers are treated to mouthwatering shots of food and the hustle and bustle of a busy restaurant. The restaurant setting also affords the show the opportunity to introduce new characters and explore storylines related to the food industry.

Overall, Grandfathered is a delightful family sitcom that is equal parts heartwarming and humorous. The show's ensemble cast, led by the charismatic John Stamos, delivers standout performances that will leave viewers both laughing and touched. The show's message of acceptance and family is relevant and inspiring, and its portrayal of the modern family is refreshing and inclusive. Fans of family sitcoms will not want to miss out on Grandfathered.
