Synopsis/Details: 

The sitcom centers on the miraculous second chance Brandy Meyer and her father Frank get at the relationship they never had because...
Frank owned a bar, creatively named Frank's Place, and was never there for his daughter, who developed several issues (abandonment, depression, failed relationship after failed relationship) over the years and, naturally, became a therapist.

When she learns of her father's death, she's unaffected. But when she sees him at his memorial, a ghost on a bar stool only she can see or hear, she's overcome with emotion.

She's then faced with a life-changing decision: If she agrees to inherit and run the bar, he can remain on said stool until he's proven himself an "adequate" father. Once he's "adequate," it's off to the pearly gates ("more like really nice oak doors," he tells her) for Frank.

After much soul-searching and a colorful group-session debate, Brandy agrees to run the bar. The series centers on father and daughter mending at Frank's Place, which caused the failure of their relationship and family to begin with.

While I'm not a fan of Top Movie lists, I've found you can learn a lot about a person based on their faves. Cheers to learning about me! (in no particular order): The... Go to bio
