After hearing the creator of the show interviewed on KPBS, I had to watch it. This show was piloted for CBS, but they ended up rejecting it. PBS picked it up, and I'm glad they did. This show is considerably better than most of the pap served up on the major networks, and has an incredible cast. This is a beautiful story about a family that is both funny and dramatic at the same time. (Much like life!) This show is truly worth watching.
