| Loved it because of what it was missing
I binge watched this series today, and felt the need to leave a comment about it. At first I couldn't pinpoint what exactly I really enjoyed about the show... the thing that set it apart from other shows. I realized, though, it was because it lacked an agenda. There is no political, sexual, racial (etc, etc) agenda in this series, so you can watch it without feeling as if people are trying to shove their opinion down your throat. It's subtle in it's humor, but had me laughing out loud, tearing up, and grinning at the end. It's over-the-top in all the right places, without being overwhelmingly goofy or campy.

Honestly, I just enjoyed being able to sit down and watch a heartfelt story without being antagonized by agendas. The acting was also spot on, and the character building was amazing.
