  • This episode was cleverley planned.

    This episode was very well thought out, especially with the last minute change of Carol Seaver. It is so introducing to the series, and is really funny. Right off the start, Mike gets into sets the tone for the entire series. They also really took a good look at the life of Maggie and Jason by giving us background information. They really gave a certain feeling to the show, and it carried on. Ben was so little, but yet really funny...some of the stuff he says and does is unbelievable for his age, and Carol is the smart one, whereas Mike is the joker. The show was so well put together.
