What doesn't work: -the weird son
-repeated jokes about business
-the house that's supposed to be a fixer-upper but really isn't all that bad considering what people with real financial troubles have to deal with.
-Liking Kelsey Grammer, who is playing a big old jerk.
-relating to a comedy that is capitalizing on the recession state of the economy; we're supposed to sympathyze with these rich folks who don't get to be rich anymore? F you.
Hank is bad. Really bad. Nothing was funny for at least 2/3rds of the episode. Hmm. Make that 3/4ths. But I did finally begin to smile and chuckle towards the end. And I kind of like the wife, though she doesn't have a lot of good material to work with.
