It's not THAT bad...
1 August 2012 | by vandyfan12See all my reviews

I've read a lot of reviews online that don't particularly like the show. It's been labeled as a generic, recycled version of "Cheers." I say...so what? Cheers was a good show. There's so much crap on TV these days, so it's nice to have a show that hearkens back to the old days. You might not fall out of your seat laughing at the jokes on this show, but they'll give you a good chuckle. The plot may be somewhat predictable, but it's still pretty entertaining.

It's like my mom said a few weeks ago...you don't watch Dumb and Dumber to be intellectually stimulated, you don't go see Magic Mike for some life-changing revelation, and you don't watch Sullivan & Son and expect to be amazed. You watch all those to be entertained. And they are entertaining.

At any rate, this show is a CRAP TON better than "Men at Work," TBS's other original sitcom.
