Funny Show, too bad it was canceled.,
This review is from: Raising Hope Season 1 (Amazon Instant Video)
Most new sit-coms take a few episodes to catch their stride, but this one is hilarious right out of gate! This show is very well written and all the characters are fun and likable.
The Chance family pulls together when they get an unexpected new addition to their family. Mom, Virginia(Martha Plimpton) and dad, Burt(Garret Dillahunt), know what it's like to raise a child while young, since they had their son Jimmy(Lucas Neff)at 15. Now that Jimmy suddenly finds himself a new dad at 23, raising a child on his own, he looks to his parents for guidance and support. Hilarious flashbacks show us just how Jimmy survived being raised by such a crazy family. They all live with Virginia's grandmother Maw Maw, played perfectly by Cloris Leachman, as a senile old lady that barely knows where she is from one day to the next.
This show is easy to watch over and over, and laugh every time! It's the little things you pick up in the background sometimes that really make you laugh -- like Jimmy's cousin drying his pants by holding them up, while riding his bike around the yard, in his underwear. I hope this show lasts a long time, and comes out on DVD soon!
