A television show worth watching

Published: Wednesday, August 28, 2013 at 06:45 PM.

Grandmother cooking Sunday dinner normally involved her twirling a chicken like a lasso until its head came off. Yum.

Although some of the show has to be contrived, all-in-all this Robertson family seems quite genuine. I like them as I liked the Taylor family for the same reasons.

I’m glad this sort of television is back, at least until it runs its natural course. Hopefully success and raging popularity won’t poison their well as it has so many others. Until then, I’ll tune in.

It’s amazing nowadays that there’s a popular show with warm and fuzzy family endings as standard fare. Happy. Happy. Happy.
