I wasn't sure what to expect from the show, but I was very pleasantly surprised. I loved the episode! The story was established quickly and we got to know the family, their dynamic and many of their quirks in the opening episode.
This isn't like most shows I watch in that it's not a crime drama and it certainly does not appear that it will be made up of stand-alone episodes, but developing storylines for each family member and the family as a whole.
I love the relationship between Jim and Stephanie. Michael Chiklis and Julie Benz make an interesting couple, but it's clear that they love each other and want their marriage and family to stay together and be happy, and that takes work. For me, that's the heartwarming part.
I"m very much looking forward to Episode #2.
