    I really like this show. It's certainly inconsistent sometimes with regard to quality level but at its best it's a fun, quirky, original show. The diverse cast help it from looking like every other sitcom on the tube. Star John Lehr certainly anchors the show in his own unique way but it's comedic sensation Jennifer Elise Cox who really makes this show worth watching. If you liked her in The Brady Bunch movies as wacked-out Jan or in the late, lamented Lovespring, Inc. then you'll love her here.

    Thankfully the show has made it to a third season and added the fabulous Kim Coles to the cast. I'm a bit disheartened by some of the online reviews I've read from people who don't "get" the show. You're not supposed to "get" it nor is it always supposed to make total sense. It's a delightfully off-kilter show about borderline-loons in a supermarket. It's not meant to be cool & hip like 30 Rock. It doesn't have to be.
