    For starters I looked up this show to see if there would be a 3rd season after watching the 1st two, so that alone says I loved it! It is truelly an awesome show, filled with humor & life lessons. I am not a t.v. junky because most shows suck & are not family friendly. Me & my 13 year old son sit here watching this show all while discussing the issues their dealing with and laughing along! Simply said ‘ It’s Great’! I wish there where more shows like this one!

    It’s a grown-up show, a smart show. People like Lawerence and Hart, with so many years of TV behind them, certainly know what they want to do and how to do it. Only suggestion would be to make better use if Nick Robinson. He is a very talented kid.

    I think the show is great. It is nice to see a good family show to watch and the entire cast is good. Joey Lawrence and Melissa Joan Hart are veteran actors who literally grew up on television and their acting skills are better than many critics give them credit for. The kids are good too.
