A truly funny sitcom.
I have to start by saying I never had Showtime and don't remember ever seeing this show but somehow I knew every word to the theme song.That's a bit weird.Anyway, this is by far one of the best American sitcoms ever.The only show that even comes close is Seinfeld.Besides just being extremely funny, this show did lots of unique things that made it even better.First of all, they not only broke the fourth wall but it was a big part of the show.Garry did an opening monologue and was constantly explaining things to the audience.Not to mention that he frequently left the set.Another unique thing they did was make the kid actually be funny.On most sitcoms if the kids get to talk they are rarely funny.The kid on this show is hilarious every time he opens his mouth.I was worried about this show at first because Garry had the stereotypical 80s wacky friend who was a terrible character that didn't fit into the show.Luckily they rarely used him and he only lasted six episodes.One weird thing I noticed is that sick freak Ellen stole her delivery from Garry.If you listen to the show without watching you might actually think it is that sicko.But it would take a lot more than that to ruin this show.If you enjoy laughing, you must see this show.
