    I'm really liking the show, but I'm not sure how they can keep it going. Right now the viewer's motivation is based on finding out "will they get together or not". Once that happens, is there much left?

    I think so. They can have a long romance, plus the humor between them can last seasons. For example, see any of Chuck Lorre's other shows. :D

    Perhaps especially on point, "Mollie and Mike" continued on. ;)

    I enjoyed that show a lot.

    But I can't see Bob and Abishola in that way. I will admit they were quite appealing this week.

    This week's episode was very good. But I wish someone had sent Bob's mom to Phoenix. And her other two kids had gone with her.

    I am probably weird, but I am uncomfortable when people play parts that require them to act like they've had a stroke, or are mentally disabled.
    So for that, this episode was not as good as the previous ones.

    That is interesting. Can you share what bothers you about it?

    In my case, that's the one thing that makes me able to watch Bob's mother.

    I enjoy the aunt / uncle and Abishola's co-workers (also Bob's). Could definitely do without brother / sister. Could drop mom. And do we even need Bob?

    Ha. I agree, Bob is the weakest part of his own show.

    I think Bob is great. But I have a long history with the actor since he played Mike.

    It's Bob's family that needs to go. All the Africans I like.

    But I've had it up to here with a romance that seems likely never to happen. I know there have been many romances that seemed impossible, mainly in movies, but you just knew they would end up together. I'm not seeing it here.

    And the way Abishola is pushing her son is just not pleasant for me to watch. It can be funny, but something about it just isn't working for me.

    I think the only part that is supposed to be funny about that is the fact that she is totally blind to what she is doing. And that is mostly sad.

    The son got to show his dancing talent in the last episode. Although I'm not sure if the back flip is really him or a camera trick.

    If you can't see a person's face, it's a stuntman.

    Don’t even assume that. Jib jab can out your head on a video pretty cheap. Studios can do even more.

    You sure they can do it and it ends up professional enough we can't tell?

    They brought Carrie Fisher back to life. Avatar wasn’t real. Nor was Gollum. Of course they can put a face on a body to fake a stunt. The only question is do they want to spend the time/money. I used Jib Jab to show the technology is pretty pervasive.

    Someone definitely did it to Sam Elliott. And the movement of "his" legs was too symmetrical to be real, aside from not being possible for a human.
