    I saw commercial for his son Jason's show, "Kevin saves world" or something. I was like, wow he reminds me of someone.
    Looked him up and wow..he looks and sounds just like dad.

    I miss John.

    I did the same thing. Did you notice that he has his dad's mannerisms and facial expressions? Uncanny isn't it? The show was pretty good too.

    Life goes on.

    I think he doesn't actually sound like his dad. I think maybe a little bit when John was in Three's Co

    He's generally good in whatever he's in. He does remind you of John at times but can hold his own as well. One of his best works was in the show Joan Of Arcadia a show which lasted about 2 seasons back in the early 00s. He was actually the best thing in it to be honest. His character Kevin was a paraplegic but unlike many of the shows shown at the time, a big deal wasn't made of the fact he was in a chair, it was just part of who he was. It should have lasted more than a couple of years but it wasn't to be.

    I read that this show isn't likely to last long due to the steep drop in ratings between the premiere and second episodes. That's a shame because it's a good show.

    I'm also glad John's widow sued the hospital due to John's misdiagnosis that led to his death. The foundation she created for awareness and early detection of his condition was a great idea too.

    This was another great loss to the entertainment industry, so sad. I loved him in three's company as well as 8 simple rules, they were my favourites.

    I have an autographed picture of his widow, Amy Yasbeck. I have an odd hobby in that I'm collecting autographed pictures of the cast of Wings.

    Jason Ritter is great. His arc on Parenthood was one of my favorites on the show. He does remind me of his dad, but very good in his own right as well.

    With all the money he made in the industry, he still wanted to continue to work.
