Often a pilot is better than the actual series, but not this time!
Christine tries to get one under her belt by picking up a guy at the supermarket. That's what everyone else does! So, in the interest of good sitcom writting, she picks up Andy Richter!
It would be hard to explain what's funny about this show. You really have to watch it. It's everything that makes it great, the actors, the script, the timing, the surroundings...you'll see.
I love the two pseudo-bitchy moms at Richie's school. They are trying to be nice but not too nice. They like Christine, but I don't think they like each other very much. If they do, it's in a kind of Odd Couple way...
The chemistry between Andy Richter and Julia, sprinkle a bit of Supertramp and watch develop.
I hope it keeps on going this way
