Love this show
27 June 2014 | by katiesimpson321See all my reviews

I absolutely love this show!I think it is very funny, interesting, engaging, and realistically family appropriate! I watched the whole season in 2 days. I am extremely disappointed that NBC cancelled it - that makes no sense. The critics seriously shouldn't have been that hard on this show - I think it is worth every penny and every effort NBC put into it. In fact, it was realistically the only thing I watched on NBC, so I guess with the discontinuation of this show, I won't be watching NBC anymore. I do think they should seriously consider bringing it back. GREAT SHOW! If you are looking for a new family show ( that might last you a week at max) or are just searching for new shows to watch, I highly, highly encourage you to look into this show. There may only be one season, but it will be well worth every minute you spend watching it.
