Silly and serious at the same time
29 December 1999 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

One of the best new shows of the season, so far I've found only the episode of 12/28/99 disappointing. The show is loaded with silliness and an ensemble cast with great comic timing, but it really develops as you get into it. The relationship that develops between Hunter and his newly-discovered daughter Chloe is the heart as well as the edge of the show. Each character has a great deal of maturing to do, and the comedy comes as much from their immaturity as from how frequently the viewer is encouraged to look down upon them and see the room for growth, and unlike Archie Bunker, always back to the same as each new episode starts, the characters seem to gradually improve from episode to episode. Except for Suzanne, she seems to get worse as episodes go on. She came across as the most mature with the first episode, and the show parallels her degeneration, or its revelation of how immature she is, further and further as Hunter tries to be a better father for Chloe. This show isn't likely to make it through the entire season, which is unfortunate. Alan Ball has created a comedy about more than just silly antics. While that isn't new, it is certainly handled in a unique, refreshing, and funny way.
