This has to be one of the most boring shows I have seen in a long time. No laughs, only cringes at the feeble attempts to be funny. Reminded me why I cancelled cable.

This is a great show that everyone can relate to their own lives. It is one of the funniest and best shows on tv. Love It!

A great show about an overworked mother living a typical life. It feels very natural and real, even despite the hokey elements that are weaved into the fabric of all sitcoms. It's just a pleasure to watch. That being said, it's not a particularly popular show, and so, it's not going to find much acclaim at an awards festival. It's not a pretentious or profound show. It's the television show equivalent of comfort food, and for that, I recommend everyone watch it. (I also find that it improves as it goes on, so if you think it is, meh, mediocre in the first season, I recommend watching it into the second season. If it doesn't entertain by that point, then it may not be for you.) I enjoy the clashing elements of the show, particularly the diversity of the children, from the apathetic bonehead eldest child Axl to the determined but downtrodden middle child Sue to finally, my favourite, Brick, the baby of the bunch, but the intellectual superior of all of them (and FYI the most awkward and antisocial character). The show's running story is pretty much nonexistent; they're just trying to live their lives and I think that's what I like about it, the plotlessness that mirrors actual life. It never fails to make me smile. I'd recommend it.

Love it .. it sooo real and I love brick/sue and usually axl !!!! worth waitin to watch the movie

"He's sixteen. He's only going to be living here for a few more years." "Don't worry, honey. When the outside world gets a load of him, they'll send him right back."
