An amateur musician of stunted emotional growth is reluctant to take care of his young nephew, but as his reluctance grows, his other emotions begin to follow to the fore, meaning he may even become a better, more-rounded person.

Born British and living in the USA, I usually appreciate keeping my cultures separate. However in this case a bit of co-mingling of USA and British comedy works really well.
The premise of a really "good" daughter jaunting off with friends and on a whim marrying this man who is so different from her, actually makes sense and of course a great basis for a British Comedy.
Greg Davies is brilliant as the bewildered father who week after week cannot fathom what has happened in his household overnight.
Andy Samberg is so meant for the role of the hippie, pot smoking, free loving, non-working husband of the "good" daughter.
You have to watch all of the episodes as the relationship between father and son-in-law changes and grows, because that's what this series is really about.
I loved this and cannot wait for the second series which I heard will air in 2013. Maybe Andy will be able to balance filming Brooklyn Nine-Nine in the USA with a hop back over the pond to continue his evolving relationship with Greg Davies!
