    So I saw a commercial for this on my Frontier flight the other day. It was part of the pre flight Directv promotion on the little tvs in front of you. This show looked very funny and somehow I had never heard of it. I set it up to record when I got back to town. The first episode I saw was last weeks about Facebook friends. That was some good t.v. How long has this show been on? What are others consensus for this show?

    It's OK - a little cutesy for my taste but if nothing else is on I will watch it (it did fall off my Season pass list though after season 1). I think this is maybe the third season (or maybe only second) but they are short seasons I think.

    My only complaint is that they seem to under use Jim Gaffigan - they never write him any funny parts. He is always so serious in this role. The man is hilarious! :p

    They lost me this season. Too much about relationships.
    And I agree, Jim is severly under-utilized

    Still enjoying the show. I was surprised to see how well the last episode "got" Twitter and Facebook. So many other shows exhibit such abysmal ignorance about the Internet that it's nice when a show gets it right.

    Is it good, meh. Regardless, Jordana Spiro is nice to look at.

    I watched about 6 episodes of this show last season. Although I love Jim Gaffigan, I don't think I laughed once in all the episodes I saw.

    The show is amusing, but seriously? 6 episodes makes a season?

    I think this show keeps getting better. Our little diamond in the rough.

    Yep, it's growing on me. I wasn't expecting last episode's ending.

    Need to remember to pad the recording times. Comcast DVR quits before the show is over. I used to work at Wrigley so this show brings back some memories.

    Love this show. It's one of our favorites. We actually laugh out loud quite a few times. Yes, Jim is under-utilized, but, a little goes a long way, too.

    The characters seem a little more 'real' than some other sitcoms. I think it's the relaxed feel of the show, and the banter that goes on between them sometimes. Even just one or two sentences when another show might have silence, seem great.

    I've never heard of this one... I just set up a SP and there were no conflicts, so I thought I'd give it a try. Thanks for the tip. :)

    The episode
    a year or so back when they surprised Andy with visit of Wrigley Field... RIGHT ON THE FIELD...
    gave me chills; it just captured the feel and spirit of local Cub fans. I was almost as caught up in the moment as their characters.

    Jim Gaffigan is local to the metro Chicago area: he grew up in Northwest Indiana, just about an hour or so from da city, and went to high school in LaPorte, Indiana. I've seen him wear a sweatshirt from his old high school on the show--a very subtle shout-out, but it was there.

    I really enjoy the show, enjoy it a lot. The dialog is clever, and the relationships are actually pleasant and enjoyable. You can understand why this crew gets together: they like each other and really have fun together.

    I just started watching this the past four weeks or so, and one reason I DO like it is because it's set in Chicago. I grew up in the western suburbs.
    No, they don't.
    Season 1 = 22 eps
    Season 2 = 9 eps
    Season 3 = 9 eps

    BTW, mrowe8, excellent thread title. That way everyone knows that specific eps are NOT to be discussed (unless spoilerized).

    Really? I thought it was pretty obvious with them always bickering back and forth that it was all just a front for the gang.

    Well, sure, especially

    since last season's finale had Stephanie and Kennie sleeping together, and occasionally saying something almost nice to one another...
