My wife and I love this show. We are so glad that it got a full season order. It is entertaining and funny and I could care less about who has an accent or not. It is totally understandable that they were born in the USA and have an American accent. Love this show and I really hope it gets a season 2!

First episode hilarious, second OK, third hmmm more of the same, seems to be a one note show so far. The principal falling for the same "trick" over and over is overkill and not funny after the 3rd time. I will continue to watch but I don't see this lasting.

That's good news. I was not expecting to like this show. However, it has quickly become one I look forward to.

Love this show so much. I've never been much of a Minnie Driver fan but she is hilarious in this show.
The comment about the kids not having accents is odd. My father is from Greece and has a super thick accent. I have none at all and why would I? I grew up in the U.S.

@Pope, studies have shown that accents and speech patterns are acquired more from friends and classmates than from parents. So if the English mom moved to the States and raised children, then it's most likely that the kids will have American accents.

Omg loving this show - and it shows families worn disabled children are accented

@Moe.. have you ever seen American Children who have 1 parent with a rather pronounced accent? They develop a sort of pseudo accent in many, many cases. Not full-on like the parent, but a word here or there. This is especially true for younger children. My guess.... the disabled kid has the accent, it's just difficult to hear :)

@Pope It's very simple she could be from London and move to America and have an American husband that has a more American type accent and since they live in America guess what....They have the same accent too. Not too much of a stretch.

I'm ecstatic for a full season pickup. Coming from a home with a disabled older brother and a mom who's overprotective of him; I totally relate. We also have issues keeping the home immaculate, we just have so much else going on. I feels great to see "us" on tv... I don't even care that Minnie's accent is ever-present and her family has none; maybe that'll be explained later on....
I'm doing good so far, this season... "This Is Us" and "Superstore" (other faves of mine), also received a full season...

Color me surprised. I picked this and "The Good Place" as top candidates for first cancellations of the season.
I really like Minnie Driver, but this show doesn't click for me at all. I'll probably keep watching it, just to see Minnie, but it will likely be after I've picked over whatever else is on the DVR.
