DH and I saw the first episode and enjoyed it well enough. Only got to see a bit of last night's episode, though. Definitely has the "My Name is Earl" vibe (a show that we started out enjoying and then got tired of).

I liked the part this week where Martha Plimpton couldn't figure out the toilet lock in the house she was cleaning. The flashbacks are cool - it is nice to see Hope's father wants to do things differently than his parents!

My son has trichotillomania (pulls out his hair, eyelashes, and eyebrows) - we were in absolute hysterics last night over that part of the storyline

It was pretty funny - especially the part where his mother turned around and two seconds later his other eyebrow was gone!

I think it's pretty funny, too. I cracked up during the second episode, when they couldn't get the baby to smile and Martha Plimpton kept saying "Maybe your baby is just a b*tch." So BAD, but so funny.

The episode when Cloris Leachman's character couldn't lose at Jenga when "Istanbul Not Constantinople" was playing made me pee my pants. Really, that last scene in the garage...I was crying from laughing.....and then I couldn't get the song out of my head for a week....

"Hey, mama!" to the fried dough lovin', monkey-boy.joy.gifI'm back and ready to chat!
