I watched the trailer for this show on futoncritic this morning and I was blown away by how funny I thoughts it was. I didn't think it would be anything worth my time based on the episode description but I was pleasantly suprised. It had a "Malcolm in the Middle" feel to it. The youngest child in it reminded me alot of of youngest on "Malcolm" as well. But it seemed like a lot of fun and it was nice seeing The Janitor in another role and this role seems to fit his style of comedy perfectly. I'm also one of few that finds Patricia Heaton funny in comedic roles.
