Funny & Smart
25 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

I loved this show. It got buried during the dog days of summer but Entertainment Weekly raved about it. So I tried it out and was hooked. Funny, smart and also sweet. The lead Father was sexy and terrific. How can a smart satire on early America not last but Jim Belushi stays on season after season? Grrrr. Why doesn't CBS show THANKS every Thanksgiving? I bet tons of people would watch it.

We were going through an old VCR tape and I came across the tobacco episode. I showed it to some friends and they were howling. That's what made me think of it recently and I wanted to look up the name of the lead actor. Glad to see there are others who appreciate smart comedy. God Bless THANKS!
