Trivia

Axl mentions that when he becomes very sick, he wants to be frozen, so that when they find a cure to the sickness, he can be unfrozen and cured. This way, he will never die. This is also the plan of the characters Phyllis, Lars, and Ted on _"The Mary Tyler Moore Show" (1970)_. See more »

Real and Funny
5 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You'd want to see this show because of the household names, Patricia Heaton, Neil Flynn, Chris Kattan, Brian Doyle Murray, and you'd be pleasantly surprised by the writing. We all "know" the harried mom, laid back dad, "under achiever" kids, but within a twenty minute episode I realize how really well the writers capture the frustration and absurdity that goes with life in "the middle". This program doesn't fit the "oh poor hapless daddy" sitcoms, the kind Bob Newhart would NEVER do, and that's why I've been watching it. Because they have a real mess of a home and wear clothes you do see in the newspaper insert ads, these are some real people dealing with some way out there kinds of characters in situations which are hilarious and sometimes heartwarming, without being mushy. This is one show I look forward to each week!!
