What was ABC thinking? This sitcom tries way too hard to be funny. The actors and actresses are great, but it seems as though the writing is just horribly done. First of all, the characters are too 'over-the-top,' at all times. So much, in fact, that they don't even seem relatable. It's almost as if the writers tried to cram in every one-line joke they could possibly think of. By the end of each episode, I feel more annoyed with the characters than anything else... If the writing doesn't improve, I think the hard truth will be that the time for this type of staged sitcom has passed.
