The cast is perfect, and it is very refreshing to see decent comedy again. Jean Smart and John Goodman are always topnotch in whatever they do, but the surrounding ensemble makes the show even better. The topic matter has been very appropriate and the writing is excellent. I would rate this show in the same category as All in the Family (although not so heavy on social issues and more light hearted), Designing Women, and Golden Girls. Bader's character as the brother adds the perfect touch and it is great to see Asner play the father. I highly recommend this sitcom and I hope it airs for a long time.
