    This looks like another Malcolm rip. What do you think?

    Looks like a cross between Malcolm in the Middle and The Wonder Years.

    I'm looking forward to checking this one out. I hope it's more like Freaks and Geeks. However, you guys could be right.

    We had the first four episode fed down by Fox for a "Viewing Party" a couple months back and I'll say this. I laughed my butt off! I thought the show was HILARIOUS!

    I have been describing this as "The Wonder Years with a bit of FOX thrown in...you never know what you'll get"[​IMG]

    The Roush Review was bad! Evidently, he didn't giggle at all.

    NY Post gave it a terrible review.
    Zero Stars

    Guess Fox is trying to cash in on the success for "Malcolm" with another "Wacky Family" Sitcom

    Unfortunate. I think it looks hysterical.

    I agree that it's probably a bad ripoff, but the commercial with the family physician checking the one kid's breathing while smoking a cigarette right in the kid's face had me rolling.

    I was thinking more along the lines of the The Wonder Years clashes with Married with Children. With all the family sitcoms over the years, there really isn't any original ideas left anymore.
