My children and I can't handle staying up 'til 10 p.m. EST to catch it, so we tape it, faithfully, every week and watch during the lag time on Friday evenings. I haven't found any of the topics covered so far to be over-done, and they could easily have been. Nor have I found that the usual ABC treatment has kicked in-the formulaic approach to programming that began in the late 70's, worked and simply won't die the "passe" death it deserves. The fact that the show hasn't served up blatant sexuality makes it easier for me to watch with my 12 and almost 11 year old than any other series on network t.v. I hope the show goes on for years to come! We are all over-the-moon that the show has been picked up for a 2nd season and hope there will be plenty more to come. If you prefer the shows with 3 kids (one of whom is dimmer than a light bulb, one precocious tyke and one hyper-intelligent) then this show is most assuredly not going to be your cup of tea...leave it for the rest of us, please!
