Why people based their opinion on the first few episodes is beyond me. And personally, the pilot wasn't even all that bad. It's very rare I chuckle through a pilot but the fact that I did, I knew it would have potential. Now that it's been on for a couple of weeks, the jokes have turned my chuckling into full laughter.
If people really want these positive family shows to take off, they really need to give them a chance instead of immediately brushing it off. There's so much negative shows that we always have to flee children out the room at all times of day, and the second we try to introduce a show that can work for everybody, we're impatient.
The kids are talented, I love the fact that the parents are hardworking people trying to bring positive direction with their children, with even Uncle Buck learning to do better. No, there will never be one like the original Uncle Buck, but this version is not competing with the original. The characters have honored him by making a story of their own. I will continue to watch.
