I feel like they put an effort in making this series. They definitely got decent casting and premise. But writing is just sub-par. When Gilmore Girls jokes zing every time, similar setup Milford jokes zing only once in a while. I know, dramedy is the hardest genre in television to write for. But it could have been much better right from the beginning.
I still think that Milford is a decent show and way above most of what ABC family puts on the air.
