    Though it never quite hits its stride, the show never pitches us into the abyss.

    While the two previewed episodes both play pretty broadly--there's also a warm spiritual side, which involves Boyce tending to his flock.

  • Troy Patterson

    The show, warm and cheesy, fits right in as another nacho plate on the network's menu of comfort food, another new sitcom that plays like a re-enactment of an old one.

  • David Hinckley

    What we have here is a classic family sitcom, with jokes that come from the quirks of the characters rather than a mandate that there be a sex line every 30 seconds.

    There's nothing wrong with TV Land trying to revive the old-school, multi-camera sitcom but the pilot for this show wouldn't have cut it in the 1980s.
