    When I first saw the promos, I thought I wouldn’t like this show. But I gave it a chance and watched the first episode and was instantly hooked. Season two is cruising along just fine, I think. But it’s not a show for everyone…

    Love the show, just the right amount of nudity, comedy, drama and violence.
    Emma Rossum and the whole family are cast perfectly.
