Charming heartwarming and funny biographical narrated comedy
What a gem! For those who liked "Malcom in the Middle" or "Everybody Hates Chris", "Freaks and Geeks" or "Scrubs" even, I think they'd enjoy this series a lot. It has that quirky family dynamic and coming-of-age story arc that's timeless and relatable, and kept me coming back. I cannot wait for more seasons.
It's very funny but also poignant at times, as it doesn't shy away from serious topics. It has the right amount of cutaways (i think many non laugh track sitcoms abuse this), and I love the occasional 80s soundtrack. The 'Goodfellas' episode had me laughing out loud. The only other show that makes me do that is Community. I'm so glad that it's on hulu, I hope more Americans watch this show.
