You have got to be kidding me...
8 May 2014 | by kofilaSee all my reviews

I had to watch the pilot due to the synopsis which is so annoying and unoriginal. Normal stupid family sitcom with blind dad?! Oh my lord! Who the F gave green light to this incredibly stupid and half ass idea? And who cares about washed up JK Simmons and double-washed up Jenna Elfman? You truly need to be retarded to enjoy this. The actors are pushing it so hard and there is no chemistry whatsoever. Jokes that you've heard zillion times...

Isn't there anyone left who can make a decent clever sitcom?!

It would make you less retarded to sniff thinner while watching Two and a half men, trust me... UGH
