Step By Step was a sitcom drama show that featured the life of Frank Lambert and Carol Foster as they moved in with each other to be a happy couple. While Carol's children Dana, Karen and Mark are not enjoying Frank's family, either are Al, J.T. and Brendan. Both Frank and Carol have ignored the discourse between the the kids and continued being happy together. When Frank's nephew, Cody Lambert comes along the picture, it seems that he feels the family is cool to be with along with Carol and her family too. Even though they never liked each other in past, soon they all realize that they finally have gotten along with each other as a real family.
The series was one of ABC's TGIF's most proud family show along with Family Matters in the 1990's. Which served a big demenstartion on how two families come together to form a big family of respect, love and support. In the seventh season of the series, it moved to CBS along with Family Matters for a new chapter, but ended in 1998. Never the less, Step By Step was the sitcom about chances to make a new life with a new family.
