    I haven't laughed out loud so much at a TV show in a long time. The open of the 1st episode was great with Pictionary.

    Love having James Cromwell back on TV. I remember first seeing him in Hot l Baltimore so many years ago.

    The whole street crossing and squatter argument scenes were hilariously uncomfortable. The the "helpfulness" of Jareb and Robin was a little over the top but this is absurd comedy but done well.

    The Hangover style of the 2nd episode (I've only seen parts of one movie) was at first eye rolling for me. But I'm so glad I stuck with it until the end. May have been a bit of a line cross but I'm still on board. Hope others are watching.

    This show just makes me laugh, and I have crazy hots for Natalie Zea. So I'm glad to have it back. :)

    Best sitcom on TV. The overnight ratings for the season premier were a series high.

    Love this show as well. Agree about Natalie Zea. The scene with him trying to parallel the truck was hysterical.

    It feels like a completely different show from last season. Still very funny though. Turning the club lights on was fantastic. "I'm like a doctor". Good stuff.

    The getting-run-into-by-a-taxi was a pretty good stunt too.. don't know if they used a mannequin or what..

    Love it. The boy is a much better actor than any of the boys on Stranger Things.

    I'm seen all aired Season 2 episodes through Episode 10.

    This season has been pretty good, but probably not as good as S1 was. They haven't utilized the kids as much this season for some reason.

    The chemistry between Natalie and Jason is pretty amazing.

    This weeks episode (The Trip) was hilarious.

    Although so far this season isn't as tight as S1, the two episodes around birth this season (S02E03 "The Tub" and S02E05 "The Birth") have to be some of the funniest TV I've seen in a long time. And I agree, the chemistry between Zea and Jones is pretty amazing.
