A relationship-advice guru, upon learning that her fiancé is cheating on her, decides to stay in a small town in Alaska, the most recent stop on her book tour. It's in this remote town, where the ratio of men to women is ten to one, she realizes she can truly learn about the subject she thought she knew so well -- how to find, and keep, a good man.
Admittedly, the first episode was awful. The second, however, was much much better. Bob Saget did not seem so awkward, the wife was not so bad, and the kids were actually fairly good. The best friend could be better, but all in all, the show is improving.
I think they would do a lot better if they lost the laugh track. It makes the show very choppy and ruins any comedic flow that could happen. I also think they would do better if they told Saget to stand up, but that is another matter altogether.
Some times it takes a show a couple of episodes to get its act together, and then it really improves, aka Kings. I will give it a few more shows to see what happens.
