funny and wholesome (update: going downhill)
4 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not a big fan of TV comedy these days, as most of them desperately and relentlessly reach for the gutter for their "comedy". Not that I'm easily offended - I can appreciate an occasional, well justified and thought out piece of raunchiness as anybody. But to be in the gutter the majority of the time like a bunch of high school boys? Is this why the average rating here is just 5/10? Not enough raunchiness for people?

This show is refreshing because it's good non-gutter comedy. These 30-ish dads haven't given up their fun improvisational attitudes toward life yet, and find themselves getting into classic comic not-so-smart undertakings that backfire, getting in trouble either with their wives or with one of the other guys. And there's warm and fuzzy make-up moments when the characters manage to rise to maturity in the face of being proved stupid.

So far, the show has gotten me to laugh out loud at least once per episode, and that's rare for me; even when the comedy is good, I don't usually do more than smile.

update 12/08/2012: The episodes since I wrote this a month ago have been somewhat lame. One show was spoiled by too much focus on the bitchy ex-wife (I suppose some people would like that). Overall, the show is losing the focus on the guys as described above.
