    I thought it was good enough to warrant another viewing. I do like Jeff Garlin.

    Yes. But it is not often I dump a comedy based on a pilot. Dads was an exception.

    I thought it was hilarious. Laughed all the way through. Best new comedy so far IMO.

    I thought it was NOT very funny at all. The scenes during the credits showing apparently REAL old home video were though..

    Plus, I got the impression it was late-ish 1980s, though I can't remember exactly why. They'd probably have a //e at least, not a ][+.

    I *do* like nostalgia type shows in general though, so will probably give it a few more tries. (Though on just the pilot, I liked "Dads" more, and
    I didn't really like that.)

    Heck, I even liked "That 80s show" more than this.. (NOT a typo.)

    Ditto...and I'm a Jeff Garlin fan so I'm definitely in for at least a few more episodes. It got laughs from me. :)

    I liked it. I'm staying. Great sitcom star power. I could do without all the yelling, so I hope that doesn't become the crux of the show, but it worked for me anyway.

    I hate the 80s, so I enjoy when people poke fun at it.

    Loved this pilot episode! :up::up:
    Interesting that they made a point of making the show take place in 1985, yet the actual home videos were from 1980.

    I thought both the boys were good--and grandpa. The mom is a little over the top. Not a bad show.

    I heard the comment about the grandpa being 80 years old. I had to go straight to the internet to see how old George Segal was. He is in fact 79 years old.

    This and Dads are the 2 SPs I've dropped so far. Not even a chuckle.

    It wasn't great, but there were a couple laugh out loud moments. My whole family was cracking up when they are in the restaurant and the younger son says, "I'm a man now. A man with needs, and I need Zoe and her sweet, delicate boobs!" :)

    I used to wear Z Cavaricci! Loved the father on Curb Your Enthusiasm and like him on here as well.
