Absolutely, Positively Love This Show
1 March 2011 | by noladollSee all my reviews

If this show doesn't get the attention of the Emmy's and Globes it will be a mortal sin.

I would venture to say it's the most unique show since All in the Family shook TV up.

It's deliciously absurd. The family breaks all conventions and beats "the system" - like scamming the Social Security Administration with a fake aunt to keep checks rolling in, stealing toilet paper out of a public restroom, or meat off a broken down delivery truck. All known illegal acts - but somehow you end up rooting for them - possibly because it is all done "not for profit" but to allow them basic necessities to survive and stay together.

If you are a totally by the rules, regimented person, this is probably not a show for you. But, if you are someone who loves absurdity, and who thinks it's funny to get away with non-violent improprieties you will ADORE this show.
