    The Goode Family is a highly imaginative and often amusing variation on that one note.
  2. 80
    Welcome to The Goode Family, a scathingly funny report from the front lines of America's culture wars.

    Ultimately, there's no substitute for amusing scenarios like the one with the dog, and clever writing, which The Goode Family boasts in abundance.
  4. 80
    Just as "King of the Hill" started out as a show about middle-class Texans and slowly evolved into a twisted take on mainstream suburbia and family life at large, The Goode Family should eventually transcend the boundaries of its original premise.
  5. 75
    If you passionately loved "King of the Hill," you will cautiously like The Goode Family. Tiptoe into it if necessary.
  6. 75
    If the show treads a little more softly, there could be greatness; radical conformity is always lampoon-worthy, no matter the setting.
  7. The Goode Family, which is nicely acted and well animated, works best when the cultural potshots give way to the more basic human needs of its characters.

    Great entertainment. Relevant and familiar, yet fresh. We all know people like the Goode Family, but it's taken a long time to reach TV. Great entertainment. Relevant and familiar, yet fresh. We all know people like the Goode Family, but it's taken a long time to reach TV. You like to laugh at them and their quirks, but you're still rooting for them in the end. Full Review »
