    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.

    GYK is one of the best comedy spot of this season and last night Halloween special was one of the best episodes so far. It was one of the top Halloween special of last night comedies block and that is considering that most of last night comedies put up great specials.

    Actually it took me a while to start, I recorded every episode but never bothered to watch them and just added them on my "todo list".
    I had to clear some space on my box, so finally decided to watch it. I was expecting for some sub-par show, and I was SO wrong. The actors and humor is actually very good . Nothing ground breaking, but it's a great funny show, it makes you laugh, and enjoy the time spent watching it. I can't ask for more.

    I sure as hell won't miss any episodes from now on ^^.
