by | January 17, 2012 | 116 Comments
This show is quickly starting to rival my favorite family comedies. It’s got a great sense of humor, and it’s not afraid to let characters make massive mistakes, with the understanding that we’re going to be along for the ride when they learn, change, and grow. Now that I’m at the halfway-ish point, it’s time... More »
