After that awful family-sitcom-clone Oliver Beene, I wasn't expecting too much from another over-hyped Fox TV show. With the cheesy opening credits and theme, I was about to give the premier a pass but I'm glad I stayed through it.
The whole show reminded me of the Addams Family and probably the Munsters. I'm not sure if that's what the creators had in mind but it works ... in a weird kind of way.
The humor is darker, more irreverent and repulsively funny even when the plot-line seems to waddle along a path that is horribly clichéd !!
It really shouldn't work , the show should be dismissed as something puerile but I just couldn't stop laughing till the very end.
I still can't figure out why.
Who knows ... it just might be a welcome addition to the dysfunctional-family sitcom clones !
