LUV IT - and look forward to this show every week!
24 April 2014 | by tehorstmanSee all my reviews

Wow! this is great fun to watch... and boy, it's been a long time since I could say that about a TV show! The dialog between the parents is refreshingly realistic - with subjects and situations that feel everyday rather than contrived. I think they've captured, perfectly, the generation gap on a multitude of fronts... while showing that some things in parenting-world will always be the same, no matter WHAT the generation! Our kids are 35 & 33 now... but, still... we are roaring as we listen to some of Jack's commentary on raising teenagers - it could have been pulled right out of this household, or some of our friends! And so nice to see a set of "tv parents" who put each other first and want the best for their kids - but don't try to be their kids' buddy! The episode we just watched had us absolutely rollin' we were laughing so hard. Laughing so hard you cry, is GOOD for the heart!
