    I keep trying to find out what the problem with this show is. I want to enjoy it, but I haven't been so far and I am struggling to put my finger on just what it is wrong with it.



    Is it that they somehow managed to make Wayne Knight, who has been immortalized as Newman, seem unfunny? Is it that they have to go out of their way to emphasize that they are in Cleveland every five seconds?



    I think the problem is that they can only make so much "ha ha, I'm 50, but I wanna pretend I'm 40" jokes in one show. They have essentially based the entire show off this and that's something that could work for maybe one episode of a sitcom, not a premise for an entire show though.



    And when Carl Reiner as Max comes in and instantly has the only three good lines of the show, you know something is not working.moreless

    • (Max sees Elka enter the room in her prom dress)
      Max: Oh my gosh! You are breathtaking... which at my age is dangerous!
      Elka: Thanks. My eyes are up here!
      Max: Just taking it all in. You are going to be prom queen, for sure!
      Elka: Why thank you! Not Agnes Bradford?
      Max: You mean Hagnes Fatford?
      Elka: Oh, Max, that's terrible!

    • Melanie: Hey Elka, you never told us what your Senior Prom theme was.
      Joy: Let me guess, "A Night To Try To Remember"?

    • (Melanie looks at Rick's mantle and notices his baseball collection)
      Rick: Did something catch your eye?
      Melanie: I was admiring your balls.
      Rick: Really? That's refreshing! Most women aren't interested in my balls.

    • Victoria: Ah, so the ladies love Max, huh?
      Elka: Especially Agnes Bradford, or should I say Fat-ass Hagford!
      Melanie: Well, she doesn't sound like much of a rival.
      Elka: She takes hormone replacements! I can't compete with someone who's doping!

    • Victoria: A Japanese company wants me to do a commercial. Years of honing my craft and finally my dream is coming true!
      Melanie: Your dream is to do a Japanese commercial?
      Victoria: No, to sell out for an obscene amount of money!

    • (Elka walks into the kitchen with her hair dyed fire-engine red)
      Elka: I changed my hair!
      Melanie: Elka, why would... huh... I mean, why?
      Elka: I wanted something fresh. I found a picture in a magazine and I gave it to my hair-stylist.
      Joy: Was it a picture of Elmo?
      Elka: This red hair comes with a temper; I will cut you!
