Very good comedy
15 November 2011 | by asprettyasacarcrash_xSee all my reviews

I loved this series and I was so disappointed that it was cancelled. The bounce between Jenna Elfman and Jon Foster is pure magic, not to mention what the supporting cast brings. All in all this is a wonderful watch and you are likely to be disappointed when you reach the end of the series, the connection that is felt between the characters is very rare and few shows manage to acquire this. Practically everyone will enjoy this as the humour involved contains different aspects therefore everyone will fall in love with at least one if not all of the characters. I've watched the series over and over again and I'm still not bored, definitely worth the watch.
