    YES. The father is so ridiculously annoying. It makes me rage every time I watch the show because there's a difference between being a jerk and being a complete a**hole.

    I personally want to punch every character on this show (Allen especially) except for the daughter since she seems to be the only good character on this show.

    Well to there credit, they do know how to set-up a situation and make witty remarks. The problem lies with the characters themselves. We don't exactly want to see a child with a mind of an adult weaseling out of things, ranging from blaming spill soda on his "friend" to have some else take the blame for his most embarrassing moment. It really irritates me how bad of liars Allen and his dad are, but they always seems to get off easy without really learning a lesson. It doesn't help that they have no real social understand of anything outside of cooperate business, where suck up to those better than you while you use people who are either nice/naive or just suck up to you.

    Granted, while writing that down, the idea does sound like a good comedy, mirroring the carefree childhood days at school with the cold pressuring world of work and business. But the real fail is likeability. Take Duckman from "Duckman", he is by definition a bad parent, a bad person, and pretty much bad everything, but we like him when he is sincere because he is sincere, that there is more to him than what he shows out in the open, that he is a deep character. Unlike Allen Gregory, who is just plain shallow. Heck, even Johnny Bravo, the womanizing 70s man-child, has more consideration than Allen Gregory. I kinda like the first episode, where Allen actually takes the helpful advice from Jeremy, a person who he just hates. But for the other episodes... he a life-suckng worm!
