10 simple rules for dating my daughter tv show
Bridget wants to dump a guy and get asked by a hottie who treats her like trash (and whose dad is Paul’s colleague), while Kerry is dejected because nobody thinks she’s pretty enough to date.
Nothing even remotely deep here, but “Rules” isn’t as silly as some of its plotlines suggest.
She doesn't always agree with some of his more outlandish ideas in getting to better know their children, but she shares his lamentations at the generation gap between parent and child.
As the "straight man" to Paul, it's usually up to Cate to be a more firm voice of reason and the heart of their family.
Since "8 Simple Rules" begins with the children already in full-adolescent mode, the shift from childhood to adulthood is abrupt for viewers, as it is for Paul, who is finally taking a more committed turn at fatherhood.
Attempting to be a good father, Paul has heart-to-hearts with both his daughters, despite their constant criticism of his clothes and outdated slang.
Usually, he'll falter due to his own shortcomings and ends up learning a lesson about himself or his children.
