    I hated her in Rules of Engagement and as a carryover I disliked her at the start of the season but she's slowly winning me over.

    Was recently watching a Modern family rerun and one of the characters looked familiar. I looked on IMDB and it was the mother. She played one of the lesbians whose child pushes Lily and is then picked up by Cam.

    You mixed up Megyn Price (Audrey - Rules of Engagement) and Momma Goldberg: Wendi McLendon-Covey (Clemmy -Reno 911). They have some similarity tho in features and body type.

    Yeah, she was the loserish chick that had all the cats and knocked boots with David Spades character a couple times. Spade was grossed out by her, but always seemed to go back to her. She always seemed kinda whatever about him.

    Wow yes you're right. Cat Liz was horridly unappealing, I didn't even connect the two until right now. :D Guess Wendy is a good actress.

    Another very funny episode. We laughed a lot. Both this and Brooklyn 99 have gotten better and better since the pilot.

    Agreed. There were a lot of good laughs in this one. The video store clerk definitely had some great lines.

    Edit: Oh wait, I think I'm an episode behind ... :)

    This show definitely makes me laugh.

    I have to say, I don't ever remember being embarrassed by my parents. It does seem like something you often see though. A guy I grew up with always mentions on Facebook how his daughter is super embarrassed by him. That if he is ever around her friends or at her school for something, he is not allowed to talk. I never felt this way at all about my parents. Maybe my parents just didn't say stupid stuff. :D

    Wendi was on Ellen yesterday, and she said all those sweaters she wears actually belonged to the real Mrs. Goldberg

    Just watched current ep last night. I am so not a kid person, but I really love the Adam kid.

    I think Wendi Mc-etc is really great in this role. I am a big fan of Rules of Engagement and she played the grossest character - in pretty much every way. In this show I think she is really pretty - just kind of 'intrusive parent' gross in a different way. I enjoy her as an actor.

    The whole thing with Adam's dance was pretty good.

    Very cool! I love how they are actually using stories and scenarios from his own childhood. At the end of each episode there is always a shot, or a very short video piece with the actual family.

    I hope this show lasts. So many sitcoms come and go these days. This is one of several, this season, that I'd love to continue watching.

    Virtually the entire school dance happened to me, only my mom wasn't the "embarrassing" one... in fact, all the kids wished their moms were as cool as her. They had no idea, I only wish I had been as popular as SHE was.

    But yeah, right down to the Jr. High slow dance, 4 feet apart from one another. They didn't do the Jr. High Shuffle though, which is a shame.

    The only odd thing about this show is it seems all the actors have Chicago accents, not Philadelphia ones. It's not that difficult to imitate either.

    I like how each of the characters are just slightly over the top versions of people I know.

    I loved how the older brother fooled the dad about "the talk". That cracked me up.

    The "real video" of the real Adam Goldberg and his mother dancing shown at the end of the show this week was epic! She was all over him-clinging to him, literally smothering him..."AWKWARD" indeed! So funny!

    And at the beginning of the ep, when Beverly was picking Adam up from school and she was asking him, loudly, if he had to "make," "make poopies.." -OMG! How mortifying!

    That was hysterical. And she was also making hand motions simulating this. Fantastic.

    This is your brain. This is your brain on drugs. You can't eat that, it's a brain! Great stuff.

    Liked the girl friend (not girlfriend!) stuff as well and good to see she was real.

    That was great. And the TV girl did have a good resemblance to the real 'muscles'.
