  • I love this show!

    ABC, please do us a favor and do not cancel this show! This has become my favorite new sitcom, the whole cast is absolutely fantastic, and the title credits, the transitions, it's just recipe for a great show which this show definitely is. Not to mention, it's absolutely hysterical.

    A perfect balance of all the characters, and each and every character is instantly likable. This series a certain charm to it to make it so lovable. I really hope this show at least makes it to a second season, this is a really good show with great potential. I could see this show go on for years, and I hope it does.

    As for the episode, it was absolutely perfect. The moment when Debra Jo Rupp's character pushed over the guy to get the last puzzle piece, I could not stop laughing. This show is hysterically intriguing, and I would be shocked if this episode didn't entice you to watch the next episode.moreless
