Actually don't hate it.
Particularly glad it's not a bunch of idiot men/fathers/husbands whose women/wives/exes are smarter/sassier/more reasonable than them, which is the more common trope these days (I believe it's called "Bumbling Dad"). Things like milking the forgotten anniversary, or even winning the Shoots & Ladders-decision-making-game (conventionally, she would win because she knows something that he doesn't, like the dice are out of the kids' magic tricks boxset, or somesuch, rather than an even playing field). Some of it is predictable (eg: Sheila's new place being in the same building, which I guessed from the moment she said she was moving), while some of it isn't (eg: actually and successfully getting the couch, rather than getting caught or destroying it; as well as successfully pulling off the anniversary guilt... for a while anyway - I expected her to outsmart him from the get-go - again, standard "Bumbling Dad").
Happy enough to put it on my B-List and keep watching it.
