This show takes me back to my youth. If they didn't tell us that this was already based on a real life family I would swear they had a camera in my house and were basing it on my family. Every bit of it is hilarious and I love, love, love Barry. He is the funniest with his mom being a close 2nd. Rest of the cast is great too and would like to see this show for many seasons to come :)

Love this witty, well-written show... so happy it was renewed!
The scenery and costuming take me back. The princess telephone in the kitchen with the long cord and the giant VCR with colored buttons are spot on.
Hair couldn't be big enough - so don't be afraid to go bigger on the whole family. Sometimes I went through an entire (tall) can of hairspray in one weekend.
The episode where Barry and Adam come across a scrambled adult TV channel actually happened to me during a party when I was trying to find MTV - instead I found the Playboy channel.
Also, Beverly's overbearing nature reminds me of my best friend's Mom who worked for Pacific Bell as an operator. She'd tap in to our after school phone conversations to tell her daughter to start dinner, and then go study for the SAT.

Smart, funny, nostalgic. What other show gives you witty dialogue like:
Barry (older son) to his dad, as dad tries to talk him out of doing his lame karate routine in the high school talent show: "so you think I'm gonna suck?"
Murray (the dad): "No son, I know you're gonna suck."
Seriously, renew this show. It's a gem. Find a way to grow the audience in season 2 and this could be the next big hit. Please please please bring back Beverly.

Please renew this show. It's by far my favorite comedy on tv, maybe my favorite show on the air. It's one of the only shows my family gathers to watch. It's got wit, heart and it's really funny. Please don't cancel it ABC, like you did with MSCL! :~(

Cleverly and intelligently written. Very relatable and realistic situations portrayed. Can be appreciated by ANYONE with parents, grandparents, siblings, school-aged children.....So anyone and everyone. Happens to take place in the 1980s but, this is just a fun backdrop for the show. It really centers around the humor that is created through family situations. I am in my late 30s. Obviously grew up in the 80s so I really appreciate seeing wallpaper my friends had in their house, hearing music I grew up with or seeing outfits I used to wear. Fun memories, good times.
This is a heartwarming, funny-funny show. Very sad if it was cancelled. So much reality-competition-fake- romance CRAP on TV now. This type of programming deserves space too. I know MANY people that love the show, including myself! Are you listening ABC? Keep this one on the air!!!

This is a wonderful, warm, hilarious, we'll written, beautifully acted family show. It deserves FAR more attention than it gets. I love it and I really hope TPTB renew it.
