Laugh out loud funny
15 December 2010 | by moossaboossaSee all my reviews

I can't remember the last show I watched that I found genuinely funny. But the more episodes I watched (all of which I devoured in one afternoon), the funnier it all seemed to me. So much so, that I was laughing out loud and struggling to stop. The writing is excellent, and the lines are delivered by these quirky, odd characters with a completely straight face. The baby is adorable, and the entire plot is strange yet almost heartwarming. Each character is individual and funny in themselves. Jimmy is loving, a little dumb and pining after the grocery girl. His Father is rather slow and a little lost, his heart set on winning the lottery. His Mother is witty and sarcastic, an obsessive hoarder and employee for a cleaning agency. And his great grandmother is rarely lucid, always senile and convinced that Jimmy is her deceased husband. All in all, this is a funny if not strange show. Throw in a baby, who is so cute you'll find yourself "awwww"ing at the slighted coo, and you have twenty three minutes of proper comedy; that is well worth watching.
