I give this show a 10+. No laugh tracks needed. Hysterically funny. The actors fulfilled their character and personality as if they had experienced the storyline in thier lives and don't forget afterlives! George and Marion are so cool and they actually like "Toppy" as well as calmly driving him crazy and Henrietta ready to have a nervous breakdown as Topper's explanations about talking to noone or himself or.....? get weaker and more nonsensical and Marion and George show no mercy. Neal, the Kirby's sidekick St. Bernard doesn't have to do much but be and look himself, along with his barrel of Brandy? ready for an emergency and for any person found in the snow needing to warm up. Yeh, right! There isn't any pretense here. Neal just enjoys the same cocktail hour(s) as his Master George and Mistress Marian, forget his kin and drinking partners.
As far as the rest of the characters, well they have thier own rendition of whats really going on. You'll just have to watch Topper one time and you'll be hooked. Well, that is if you still have your own natural sense of humor tickled by the natural side of living and responding to associating your own thoughts about the unexpainable and the trying to make it seem like all these suddenly schizophrenic moves are just being looked at by Hennrietta incorrectly and that she is just overreacting and misinterpreting everything she is seeing lately!!
