    Initial impression: It fits. Fans of Chalke will remain fans, and everyone who long ago realized that Elizabeth Perkins was the best thing about "Weeds" will as well.

    This is still a charming series, and the cast gets plenty of mileage out of the role-reversal at the show’s heart.

    It feels like a happy medium between "The New Normal" and "Everybody Loves Raymond," but it manages to feel comfortably familiar as opposed to stale and overdone, largely due to the extremely talented, relatable cast.
