    I only watched the first episode and I already love it. It feels familiar but fresh. Sure atm it sounds scripted and seems predictable, but this show has lots of potential and it already has that zest that made me fall in love with shows like boy meets world, sabrina the teenage witch, and all the TGIF shows from the 90s. Scrubs is gone, Friends is gone. I have a big hole in my tv schedule for a comedic show with familiar actors from my teenage years. Add a little actual drama to the show, and I think the obvious chemistry between Hart and Lawrence can fly the show into what people will consider enjoyable.

    I missed the first episode but saw the second one and loved it. It's good to see Melissa and Joey back on tv. They have great chemistry. Melissa is an aunt not a mom? how funny. It's weird seeing her as an adult i still watch sabrina the teenage withc. lol

    I'll watch it while it's on just because I like to have a few shows that I can have on in the background while I do other stuff. This fits that mold pretty well. So far I like the goofiness of Joey's character. Melissa's character needs work.

    I like the show as well. I grew up watching "old school" sitcoms like Facts of Life, The Nanny, etc. Sure, the plots are predictable. But if you have good writers and a cast with chemistry (as Melissa and Joey does), it works.


    I don't understand the low rating this show and especially the episodes have. It's not that bad. At least it doesn't make me want to stab my eyes out like all of the other original ABCFamily shows.

    This is just one of those shows that you just set back and enjoy for no other reason other than you enjoy it. It is one of those fewshows that my wife and I both like.

    Of course it's very predictable, but main leads are pretty interesting. But when there's a story about kids - it's beyond awful. Boring and annoying.

    I disagree...I always like it, even if the kids are involved!

    I'm glad Melissa Joan Hart is doing better in this show rather than in that "Sabrina Teenage Witch" show.
