1 Here is the epitome of all that is wrong with network sitcom tv. Lazy, uninteresting, writing backed with by-the-numbers storylines and acting, makes for safe, spoon-fed "entertainment" for the brain-dead masses. I thought this tripe died off with the likes of Home Improvement and it's ilk. If not, it should have. Not even good for comfort TV, it is just too lame, too unfunny, without a hint of innovation. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on June 14, 2014, 12:03 am - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Agreed with BrewMaster on Courtney Thorne-SMith, but I also like Jim Belushi. No bone. -- Submitted By: () on January 8, 2012, 2:37 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I think the final season just completely lost the spirit of the earlier seasons. Dana was no longer there and part of the fun of the show was the Dana/Jim rivalry. When new babies in shows are introduced, they pretty much always go downhill from there. Part of the show too was how Jim was basically outnumbered by women in his family and only had Andy as the only man on his side (though sometimes that didn't work out too well) You can even tell how the audience reacts to jokes in the last season as opposed to the first seasons: they seemed more alive back then, but the final season the laughs seem forced and not fully into it either. -- Submitted By: (Joshadragon) on March 10, 2011, 7:56 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 how the heck do shows like this last as long as they do? I'll never understand. -- Submitted By: (VeritechRyan) on October 19, 2010, 9:58 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Choking on a shrimp puff and going to purgatory as the grand finale. *shakes head* I'm glad I missed that episode. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 17, 2010, 10:54 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Wow. I had no idea THAT was how it ended. That's got to be one of the lamest endings for a sitcom ever. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 15, 2010, 7:43 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Yeah, DolFan, it did. Jim choked on some snack and died and then went to Purgatory where they had Kimberly Williams-Paisley come back (after having left the show for a year or so to bear her and Brad Paisley's firstborn son) to play Dana. ..as the Devil who battled over Jim's soul with Andy as Jim's Advocate (never mind that both these sibs-in-law were supposed to be alive)- and then Jim woke up and the last thing seen was a shot of a snack getting caught in his windpipe. The end. As you say, it seems like it's been on for 20 years so why bother with something so stupid as that finale. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 15, 2010, 11:57 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Wait, you mean this show finally had a finale? It seemed to be on the air for the past 20 years! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 14, 2010, 10:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Although I admit it has its share of lame (and even nasty) moments, I actually liked this show until the awful finale. I guess because even the somewhat snooty sister-in-law Dana and sidekick dorky bro-in-law Andy were shown to be multi-dimensional who could each step out of their 'normal' roles and either save or ruin the day unexpectedly. Yeah, Jim usually was the couch-potato schmuck who got shown up by his smart hotty wife but sometimes he'd show some insight and sometimes Cheryl would do zany stuff -and that helped keep the sitcom from getting stuck in a rut. Oh, and I had to love the [unstated Albanian] Jim having an altar ego of the Irish Green Man who was the bane of Chicago on St. Paddy's Day! LOL One thing, though that bugged me was the show's refusal to EVER allow Jim, Cheryl or even his siblings-in-law to be referred to by a surname- even in situations where the other person would normally have used surnames when addressing them (e.g. police, teachers, ministers,etc.). Even if they didn't want to go the route of considering Jim's or Cheryl's differing ethnicities, why not at least give them some generic surnames? Still, I thought it was overall a fun show (and sometimes it was fun to consider how many ways Cheryl could pronounce 'Jim' LOL). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 3, 2010, 4:55 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Maybe it's envy and jealousy on my part, but shows that feature an overbearing schmuck of a couch potato married to an absolutely SMOKIN' way out of his league hottie typically lose me from the get-go. -- Submitted By: (Nature_Boy) on November 12, 2009, 4:31 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Jim Belushi is as grating as a dull toothache, but Courtney Thorne-Smith? Rawwr! -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on July 13, 2009, 10:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 This was never more than an average sitcom that lasted for a surprisingly long time in today's reality infested airwaves. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on May 8, 2009, 11:07 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
