I use this to hammer in my "For Sale" signs. You know, every time I swing it I feel like I'm driving in a golden spike on a whole new future and I smile. Although sometimes I hit a sprinkler line, then I just run!

Until I read a preview in a magazine (I believe it was FHM) that called this the best new comedy of the season I was not prepared to give it a chance. Thankfully I did. Dennis Farina is hilarious as Victor Pellet. His character is complicated and well-developed. I would love to see this show moved to Thursdays in lieu of the dreadful "Good Morning Miami". That would make for a night of truly Must-See TV.
