All the characters make this show
11 August 2016 | by misslakiSee all my reviews

I honestly didn't have any good expectations when i first turned on the show based off of the other horrible family t.v. shows the last 5 years. Nighttime SOAPS are not my thing.

When I look for a TV show, i want a natural dialogue, comedic timing, good face humor and not exaggerated high pitched banter.

I enjoy this show because it holds its own from the original movie. A great family show with a good cast. Each character does there thing, which I enjoy. The writers don't force the characters humor, its mainly common reactions to everyday life situations. I know I'll KEEP WATCHING!
