Anything that happens is predictable.

Light enjoyable comedy that would be good replacement for Friends or How I met Your Mother fans - we would both like to see more please it should be made into a sitcom - a bit of easy light comedy is exactly what we needed, the perfect antidote to Brexit.

I enjoyed it.

The laugh track was unbearable.

Predictable easy watch show, no where near as funny as the canned laughter.

Five minutes in and it's unbearable and unbelievable.

There are some funny lines from the impending fiancé but everything else is trying and tedious.

It is beyond tiresome.

What follows is a tedious and unwitty, family-based comedy that is laugh-less, cliched, poorly acted for the most part, especially by Dennis Quaid, and directed with such a lack of skill, you are glad the helmer is not a traffic cop.

Unbearable laugh track .

It's enjoyable and good enough if you want to watch something simple to pass the time.

It's entertaining, has serious subjects and it never gets boring.

The characters develop over the first season and are very enjoyable to watch.

This is really worth the watch.

Canned laughter makes it unwatchable .

Predictable storylines delivered plainly, without originality.

Canned laughter, obvious setups, bland actors (they ruined Dennis Quaid :'( ); don't waste your time on this show.

So entertaining .

I knew Dennis Quaid was bad but there are so many mediocre actors/actresses in this show that made it unbearable to watch more than 4 of the episodes.

Grinch horrible nasty boring rubbish.

Enjoyed it!

I usually read reviews but I never write any but I felt I should write one because tbh most reviews seem like they're based on the 1st episode and the show is actually very good I binged the whole 8 eps without even realizing i mean it's light, entertaining, fun with realistic characters!!

Boring Laugh track really.

Surprisingly enjoyable and I'd like to see this made into a sitcom .

Ya it's a little cheesy but I really enjoyed it!

I didn't even finish the pilot because it was so unbearable.

Dennis Quaid is great, the rest of the cast is competent and attractive but the cheesy laugh track is so grating and so bad that it makes the show unwatchable.

Cute but predictable .

Husband and I watched this from the 1st Dec and we both thought it was very enjoyable, chain-able and that the characters were really well written.

Anyways I really enjoyed it

Entertaining Show That Can't Really Go Anywhere .

But with a laughtrack that still haunts my mind and the painfully boring jokes I won't even finish the series.

Gets really better, I really enjoyed it .
