Season Six sees Bronson Pinchot (Perfect Strangers) join the cast as beautician Carol Lambert’s (Suzanne Somers) new business partner: hairdresser extraordinaire Jean-Luc Rieupeyroux. The partnership comes with Frank Lambert’s (Patrick Duffy) blessing, but Frank has second thoughts when Jean-Luc turns out to be a world-class meddler. Whether it involves Carol going incognito to Mark’s (Christopher Castile) basketball games, J.T. (Brandon Call) moving into a bachelor sanctuary, Frank’s spoiled camping trip or Lilly (Emily Mae Young) getting too many birthday gifts, Jean-Luc is behind it. Meanwhile, all of the grown kids except Brendan (Josh Byrne) want to go to a music festival, but Carol forbids them – until Al (Christine Lakin) discovers that Carol attended Woodstock and smoked marijuana! And to make matters worse, Frank has a midlife crisis.

“Step By Steo” is my opinion, is a pure ABC hit! I can’t recall every episode, but I still enjoyed it. It’s hard to say which episode was my favorite. However, I think it was always funny when a mishap occurred at school. I always laugh at that. As a matter of fact, I think just about every single one of J.T. (Brandon Call) and Cody’s (Sasha Mitchell) lines were funny. It would have been nice if Penny (Patrika Darbo) had stayed on the show throughout its entire run. Everyone always gave a good performance, the production design was spectacular, the costumes were well-designed, and the writing was always very strong. In conclusion, I hope it never stops airing in syndication.

Movie Quality: 9/10

Final Thoughts

Step by Step was a great show. Staci Keanan’s character, Dana Foster, was the best! She always had an answer to everything, and her relationship to Rich Halke was unexpected but funny. I really enjoyed this show when it aired in the US and I was really disappointed when the season ended in 1998. It was always fun watching this family get through all their interesting predicaments, as well as an introduction that took place on a roller coaster.
Overall Rating: 9/10
