Jimmy doesn't mind at 23 sharing his birthday with Maw Maw, although it was hell as a kid, when she had lots of friends and he none. When he turned 18, in his impertinent Goth period (alias 'Drakkar ...
The series is an excellent example of the Butterfly Effect. In the pilot episode, there's a scene where Maw Maw kisses Jimmy, thinking he's her deceased husband. Right after this happens, Virginia announces that they're out of bubblegum ice cream. Mike and Burt put their fingers on their noses, signifying that they won't be going to get more. Jimmy is busy wiping off his lips, so he puts his finger on his nose last, meaning he has to go out and get more. On the way from the store, Jimmy meets Lucy, who hops in his van as she's running away from her boyfriend. Of course, this is what leads to her getting pregnant with Hope. So basically, if Maw Maw hadn't kissed Jimmy, Hope wouldn't have been born. See more »
Cloris Leachman, who reportedly was born in 1926 and made her film debut in 1947, and who easily has the longest career of anyone in the cast, is credited as "and introducing Cloris Leachman as Maw-Maw." See more »
I have to admit, from the previews, I wasn't planning on watching this show. I was simply setting up my DVR to record another Fox show and figured, why not record this one too since I have been a fan of Martha Plimpton since the Goonies. I am so glad I did.
I LOVE THIS SHOW!!!! The show is hilarious. I go from laughing out loud, thinking, "I can't believe they did that" to feeling warm and fuzzy. Garret Dillahunt is absolutely hilarious, Lucas Neff is adorable, and I love watching Martha Plimpton's character capture both a roughness and sweetness at the same time. She is brilliant. I find myself watching the episodes twice and laughing out loud each time. Looks like a great show and I hope it continues to stay as funny as the first two episodes have been.
