    I love this show more than vintage I Love Lucy. I laugh out loud and so enjoy the range that these characters show each week. From pathos to unexpected tenderness, to biting humor is just such a joyride for the viewer. At 51′ I have had to play catch up on the USA Network and Fox, but I have now caught up to 90% of the shows. I praise it to anyone who will listen to me. I don’t want it to go away. I get tired of rape, death and MURDER on Law and Order SVU,the other showninind expertly executed and acted. But I enjoy laughing, mostly at Phil. He can be so naive, yet so on the ball with his parenting. Overall amazing writing. I do think the gay couple argue too much and don’t trust each other like the others, but every relationshipmhasnissues, right? Keep on delivering sharp scripts, and I hope this lasts another 5 yrs. my husband doesn’t like it, but I catch him watching and and asking questions. I just smile and answer calmly. Better to know what is going on so when I rant and ave he has a good idea why.
