Excellent show!

Love how the older shows aren't quite so...

PC? 😊
We were watching last night and actually was kind'a taken a'back by some of the conservative views. You NEVER see that in movies or shows now. Then I had to remind myself we were watching the premier season from 10 years ago. I was laughing pretty hard when the ywere talking about a co-ed volley ball team and someone asks Tim Allans character "why'd you vote like that" and he says, "I thought he was gonna be a better president" LOL Talking about Obama. Or how he gets into it with the lib day-care guy and calling his grandson Champ and stuff. Funny.

We were laughing consistently through-out the episodes we watched. Smart writing and well delivered.

When you really wanna step back in time...

Try All in the Family. And The Jeffersons.

The very first episode of the Jeffersons, you'll be treated to the N word and "bitch" word.

Very different times!

The political views on this show didn't change much until the end last year. ;) :p

I used to watch the Jeffersons all the time as a kid. Watched some Archie Bunker / All in the family, reruns of the Honeymooners, Dukes of Hazzard, Good Times, What's Happenin' etc. etc. Old sit coms were pretty good.

It actually did get dropped by ABC over Allen’s views, but then got picked up by FOX right away.
The first episode on FOX is an outright face slapping of ABC! Funny stuff.
So seasons 7,8,9 are FOX.
Imo, it slides during season 8, and honestly I stopped watching during the last season (9).
I just wasn’t laughing at it anymore, and the cast changes and writing just didn't do it for me.

But those early seasons were epic!

I gotta say that the original cast (minus the initial Ryan) could not have been better.
Kaitlyn Dever consistently has to underact to avoid stealing every scene. Sometimes they turn her lose and she NEVER disappoints. I truly believe her to be a future academy winner. When Allen says “man I love that kid” he really means it. She is a star. I first noticed her in Bad Teacher.
Ive crushed on Nancy Travis since her role in “internal affairs” my god she was just insane gorgeous.
The first Mandy is from a music theater background, and even though I detest her in real life, there’s no denying her stage chops and the perfect choice for that role.
It’s a really good show, for a lot of reasons.

I agree, the original cast was really what made the show, after all the caricature changes it just lost something.

There's a Schiada on one of the episodes, I don't think they had enough room for a Cigarette 👍
think it was tony scarlata boat, tim was sitting in it on the showroom floor, or whatever they call that room in bass pro shops.

I like the show. It's just comedy relief...especially since we're dealing with "Hope and Change 2.0".
My kids like it too, and the reruns are on everyday I think.

I think the show was better with the original Mandy.
I do like when they poke fun at the character change though. I think it was a line about half way into the first season with the new Mandy and Kyle was looking for her or something and said something along the lines of "Oh! There you are Mandy! When did you get tall and Blonde?"

Molly Ephraim made the show for me i absolutely love the brain dead ding bat shit, but she toss some legit hard ball every once in a while that makes you just laugh cause it goes from ding bat to very intellectual. And she’s smoking 🔥 hot

Nearly done with season two. Been binge watching episodes at night before bed with my wife. Find ourselves rollin. Shit is funny. Also interesting that the episodes were watching are 10 years old but the political points still stand and could be sub'd in for a show today.
