  • you, sir are no Carroll O'Connor.

    What a stinking mess they made of this show. Just watched the first season on DVR and was pleasantly surprised that I could tolerate Tim Allen's character. I have always enjoyed Nancy Travis also Hector Elizondo as the store owner and his little pal Kyle are good for a few chuckles. Flip to the current season and they have done some kind of character assassination on Mike. He was a likable Hank Hill type made of flesh and now they have tried to turn him into another Archie Bunker but ended up with an idiotic one-dimensional train wreck who makes Homer Simpson look like TVs father of the year. Massive FAIL.moreless
  • Political Nosedive

    Wow, after being such a good show last year, this first episode really blew. I do NOT want to turn on a light humor sitcom only to be riled up by politics. Big stinker. This new showrunner has started off running in the wrong direction.

    Also, really sorry to see the odler sister acress go. Don't care for the new girl at all.
  • Too political and not so good change!

    There were some great moments of this episode. But overall, just too political! There were some great political jokes! But it wasn't worth all of the "Obama's better!" "Romney's better!" fuss. Also, the character of Kristen has changed, which is good in the sense that the character is growing, but not in between seasons and not when you recast the character! I hope this season gets better as they build on Kristen's new personality.moreless
  • Sometimes change is bad

    I liked this show in season 1, it wasn't anything groundbreaking but it was fun. Now, cue mess. What a waste of talent. Changes that did not need to happen and have not improved the show. Series link has been deleted. Such a shame.
  • Stifle it Edith!

    Did they have to bring Meathead and Gloria into what was a funny series. I watch programming like this to be mindlessly entertained, I'll get my politics and news from other sources. This episode was just a blatant attempt by Hollywood liberals to use this medium to push their social agenda. If I wanted to be preached at, I'd attend church services

    Has anyone asked why "Milk" wasn't a box office hit? It wasn't entertaining!
