  1. The lesser problem is that all the gags are telegraphed. We see them coming long before they arrive. The bigger problem is that when they get here, they all feel forced, as if someone thought of the gag first, then tried to manufacture a situation, however contorted, that would lead to it.

    I absolutely LOVE this show. I do wonder how the writers will be able to keep it funny. You do see most of the disasters coming, however. I I absolutely LOVE this show.

    The fact that it feels like a sitcom version of meet the parents is why it works so well! its the humor that makes you want to look away from The fact that it feels like a sitcom version of meet the parents is why it works so well! its the humor that makes you want to look away from the TV set, but you cant because you want to see the reaction from the rest of the cast. It is one of the best new sitcoms on TV this season! Full Review »

    The pilot was funny at first, but the humor started to get annoying towards the end. I was saying enough already with the stupid decisions The pilot was funny at first, but the humor started to get annoying towards the end. I was saying enough already with the stupid decisions and bad luck the main character was having. This kind of humor is funny for one episode, but its going to go downhill from here. Its amazing how writers would think this show to be successful. I will have to reevaluate myself or the rest of the tv viewing world if this show is picked up for another season because something must be wrong with one of us. Full Review »
