    We don't seem to have interest in an episode thread, so I'll create a season one.

    I thought this past episode was the best of the bunch. I think maybe it hit home some because their daughter is 14, same age as my daughter, and I get the whole privacy thing. It's a fine line between it being "Your house, your rules" and respecting your teen's privacy. I liked how "hooked up" was so misconstrued. I loved Bert using Yiddish expressions (and I understand them as my mother spoke it) and Kate says something like, "I don't know how Bert learned Yiddish but please don't make him stop" Cracked me up. I also liked how Diane knew all the texting culture stuff...catfishing and all that.

    This show is really starting to grow on me a lot.

    I've been trying to catch up with some of the new show premieres, and I just watched the first episode the other night. I found it surprisingly funny.

    I deleted the show after the second episode. I didn't hate the show, but I didn't especially like it either. I think Modern Family is all the family sitcom I have capacity for.

    Give E3 a shot if you can find it. It definitely had a MF vibe to it, and I thought it was very funny.

    I am sticking with it so far mainly because I like all of the cast. It has some good moments as well.

    First episode was very good. 2nd episode stunk. Haven't watched the 3rd.

    My wife and I are mildly enjoying it so far - it's got a really strong cast. I'm not sure that I like the re-cast of the daughter between the pilot and when the series went into production, although I guess they wanted a different vibe for the character, I'm just not sure that I like her all that much.

    I really liked Bailey Madison on Once Upon A Time playing young Snow White. She does not stand out on this show nearly as much.

    I think it is by far the best of the freshman sitcoms but I also don't think it is destined to be long for this world.

    I'm liking it, especially the third ep.

    Kind of wish this had been given the Wednesday slot after Modern Family.

    There's a lot of good stuff on this show for me, but hands-down my favorite part is their Chinese son. He's hilarious and makes me smile whenever he's on screen.

    I love the kid too and the ex wives. But the best friend is a little over the top. "You got married and I didn't hear from you for a week. You mean our honeymoon?" Funny, but no one is that selfish. I hope.

    Warren was excellent in this episode.

    "Meg, you ate the styrofoam?'

    That would have been great.

    I was expecting the solar system to get used when they were making their drinks.

    Curry infused mustard.

    Not hilarious, but I too like the cast. It's a big step down from The West Wing though, for the main guy.

    I continue to enjoy this show. I think that what makes it good is having wife #1 (great character!) and wife #2 (so needy, but great comedy) as a part of the group.

    If it were just him, wife #3, and the kidlets, I'd probably get bored fast. There is only so much you can do with that (that hasn't been done a zillion times already). Having the two first wives and having kids with each of them has turned out to be better than I wold have expected.

    I think you're right. I really liked how wife#1 talked to her son on the ride home - telling him what he did with the lego Falcon was a hint at what he could get into - engineer, architect etc. I didn't like her character at first, but the more she is around the more I like her.

    Another really fun episode this week, although predictable that they'd get locked in that storage room. I loved the 1st wife on Skype and overhearing how she was going to get lied to.

    I like this series too.

    I think the daughter is a bit too bitchy (maybe they are portraying teenage girls correctly and I just don't know that, lol).
