this show is chawesome (choice + awesome for you kids)!
25 May 2010 | by (travelling) – See all my reviews

Stumbled on this show without hearing anything about it whatsoever. I recognized the dad from Entourage and other movies so started watching. Its a great show, thought the older brother character seemed a little "played out" not the actor but the character seems to be in every movie/show but he did grow on me as well as episodes went by.

Maybe its kinda aimed at geeks or outcasts a little, mixed with the dysfunctional family (not that my family is as crazy as this, but we are crazy in our own right) but I liked and related to this show plenty. Living in a small town is something I can't really relate to but most everything else in this show would be funny regardless of the setting.

Now I will have to get season 2 on DVD since I don't have HBO Canada (CBC? why would you not show season 2? I'm not feeling your new 2010 shows over this one)
