If you're looking for a good and funny family show (rare these days), this is it. From what I've seen so far there is very little in common with the sluts and idiots you will find on Friends and Sex and the City and multiple other sit-coms.

Solid parental characters, a stronger than usual man-role for the father, a mother character who keeps him in check, normal kids, good values, and very entertaining from what I've seen so far. Definitely not prudish, a good mildly biting comedy.
I would compare this to "Still Standing" but perhaps even better as the Peason parents are less dysfunctional than the Millers.
