    Has anybody else been watching this show? It seems to be pretty low key and I don't hear much about it, but it's not bad at all. It seems to be getting better each week as the characters and stories develop.

    The cast is pretty top notch and they are developing the characters pretty nicely. The whole thing comes across as pretty believable and it presents a lot of everyday life issues with sincerity.

    Whether the characters are struggling or not, the episodes always leave me with a pretty good feeling.

    For all the Sons of Anarchy/Breaking Bad/Spartacus, etc. type shows that I typically watch, every now and then I'll stumble on a show like this and get hooked. I've been a huge Peter Krause fan since Sports Night and the rest of the cast is perfect. Not a single character that I don't think was cast perfectly.

    It's not the most dramatic show, but I really like the way they handle real life everyday situations.

    The great part of this show is that they make you feel the problems each character has. Max's autism breaks my heart and frustrates me. Haddie being 15 (yeah right) and willful makes me feel like a nervous dad. I get where Crosby is coming from with Jasmine, though I wish he would have kept on with Marguerite Moreau. I feel Sarah's feelings at not having lived very successfully and having such intelligent, difficult kids. I love Erika Christensen's tits.

    Wait. No, that's right.
