Neither do I, but apparently, that's how they ended the series. The dad somehow ends up in charge of everything and ENDS CIVILIZATION AS THEY KNOW IT:
Cheery viewing for a Sunday night.
This show was many things. Most of them pretty annoying, actually (I was once in the comic book store while some guy and his little kid were also there, and the kid repeated Baby Sinclair's catchphrase "I'm the baby, gotta love me!" non-stop for A HALF HOUR STRAIGHT; I experienced true rage that day). But subtle? Not so much.
