It's not so bad!
9 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I believe sitcoms are still worth the effort regardless of the cost. Let's face it, sitcoms are preferable in syndication than any crime dramas. In this sitcom, veteran comic Bob Saget plays a suburban dad and husband and Cynthia Stevenson plays his wife in unmentioned suburb somewhere. In the pilot episode, we meet them and get the basic humor of all about their neighbors and friends like Jere Burns who plays Dr. Jim. The pilot was weak and poorly written but the cast does pull it off and I'm hoping and praying that they get a better time slot as well as some improvement in their scripts. They placed this show right after the dancing with the stars show because it worked for Samantha Who? I am glad that they have a studio audience because comedies don't work well without one in reality and it's an immediate effect. Sadly in today's world, sitcoms are far and few in between and I pray that there will be more to come.
