    Another Raising Hope viewer here. Had to start padding the end. We always seemed to miss the kicker.

    I love the show, and Martha Plimpton.

    Although, I am seeing, it is getting a bit less about Hope, more about the crazy antics of the parents and Maw-Maw.

    ...as two different characters.

    I think he has also been on about half the other series on TV since then.

    My main annoyance with this show is that they keep cutting off a lot of the end, and apparently it is not on before Glee anymore, so I can't just go watch it on our recording of that. :) I fixed the recording to add padding, but last night we watched 2 of the 3 on the tivo and had to go find the endings on Hulu.

    Just started watching this on Netflix and now I'm all caught up. I avoided it early because like others here i don't care for the "idiot, white trash" family shows. The difference I see in this one is that the family makes steps to improve themselves where most other shows just keep the family stupid.

    I really like Raising Hope and I think it's great that every once in a while you see a reference to My Name Is Earl. Plus the blond Mom and Sabrina are both smoking hot.

    I had to rewatch the scene with Sabrina in the nursing home several, several times. Yowza!

    I don't get why the show doesn't get much buzz. It is very funny and all the characters on it are likable. I watch all the shows on Friday and Saturday nights and I invariably go with Raising Hope as about the second or third show on Friday night (top billing goes to It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia).

    I have't gotten around to watching any of this new season. I really like the show. I just have so much piling up on my TiVos! I'm staying more current with competition shows like TAR, DWTS, and Survivor as well as some dramas that this one has just fallen down on the priority list.

    I watched it up until this season. Last season really lost me, especially with the storyline about ....

    Hope's mother actually being alive. Too over the top.

    Love the show.

    The main appeal is that the Jimmy and the family are nice people who love one another. It is also really funny.

    Kind of a bump but funny reference in last weeks when Burt was waking up from anesthesia and said with a droopy eye "well that's one for you Wild Bill!" Nice callback to his Deadwood Jack McCall days.
