    Anyone else watching this show?

    Last night's show had me tears I was laughing so hard. It may be because I'm off the age to find this type of stuff funny though.

    and I'm glad to see Ed O'Neil doing comedy again.

    why the face?

    thought the previews looked awful, but I gave the show a chance because of Ed O'Neil, and I'm glad I did. It's taken me a little while to like the characters, but the writing has been top notch from the get-go. It reminds me alot of Arrested Development in a lot of ways, but the humor here is less over the top.

    I just watched last night's episode on Hulu, and it's still got my attention. O'Neil anchors it for me, but his son-in-law is a close second. The bit at the end with the song was cheesy and predictable, but the fact that it was stuck in eveyone's heads later was the punchline, and it's the details like that that I love.

    THIS. I loved his work in Dragnet and John From Cincinnati, but I've been wanting to see him make me laugh again.

    I admit the show took some getting used to, but I love the characters so far. I hope Shelly Long shows up some more.

    It's funny at sometimes, not at others, but at no time did it seem bad. If I catch it again, I'll watch it.


    The bike one was pretty damn funny, though.
