    Hank and his family

    By the_chalee, Feb 05, 2010

    I normally do not write reviews. Can't even remember if I have ever written one before, but in this case I will make an exception.

    I love it. I just do not understand why it received such bad reviews. Very funny show. Frasier//oops sorry Hank is a very lovable character and his family (took me a while to warm up to the son) but all are likable. Now, I did discover The Middle first - did not know until this week that Kelsey had a new show. Now will not miss it. Hope they let it stay around for a while.moreless

    It's a shame

    By lulzyboy, Oct 19, 2009

    It's actually quite a shame that this show is going to get cancelled because of its ratings.

    Sure, It isn't great but it's not as bad as everyone is making out. I

    think the problem is people are expecting a fraiser contiunation but

    that isn't what this is about. It's just a sitcom thats quick and

    entertaining. I also don't believe it's to everyone's taste, Some will

    like it, Some will hate it. But there are many shows on TV using this

    and they won't get canceled. When comparing it to it's timeslot it's

    obvious to see why it's failing so please ABC, Just move it's timeslot.moreless

    Great pilot and great family show since Everybody Loves Raymond, don't listen to the negative reviews. Give this show a chance. Definite potential to develop in coming episodes.

    Loved the pilot, not too sure why the negative reviews. Kinda reminded me of Everybody Loves Raymond with the family storyline. Plenty of crack-up lines mainly from Hank's character, very funny indeed! Much better than the Middle, which wasn't funny at all. Kelsey Grammar is clearly leading the show, the other characters definitely have scope to develop. The writing could be better, but certainly gives quite a few chuckles throughout the episode. Hank and his wife and two kids are funny enough, though the brother is kinda annoying. For fans of ELR, this show is definitely up your alley! Hope the show sticks around for a full season! :)moreless
