    This was such a hysterical episode, I don't really even know where to start. Out of all of ABC's comedy lineup, this show made me laugh most tonight, which you'd think would be uncommon with 3 sophomore shows compared to this brand new one, but this is definitely the best comedy in ABC's lineup. Not just of the lineup, but definitely one of the best new sitcoms currently out there.

    Maddie was particularly funny here tonight with her going against the hypothetical CPR situations. Also the family taking all the things out of context which resulted in chaos. The cat was a great addition as well, Debra Jo Rupp never fails to impress on this show, and things were definitely no different here. Superb episode to this very hilarious comedy. Hopefully it wont get canceled.moreless
