First off the lead stars are PERFECT together!
I already loved "My Fake Fiance" and thought Melissa Joan Hart
and Joey Lawrence had amazing chemistry together and they keep
it in tune for this series as well!
This is actually more "adult" than one may think!
Definately not just a kids show! Some of the jokes are
geared toward the older fans! It's as good as any prime-time
sitcom on the major networks, if not BETTER!
What is even more cool, is that it takes place in my town
of Toledo, Ohio...HOWEVER, I hope that in future episodes they
reference the town slightly more with actual Toledo facts!
Maybe mention the MUDHENS STADIUM or TOLEDO ART MUSEUM!
I did catch the MUDHENS items in the background during a scene
in one episode when Melissa and her friend were in a bar together!
Some of the pics they show of buildings, etc. do not look much like
Toledo tho! lol
Anyway...I hope this show continues for quite some time!
GREAT SHOW! GREAT CAST!
Can't wait for new episodes to start! :)
Truth be told, I found the first 3 or so episodes to be very average. But things start to pick up as the chemistry builds between the leads, and the relatively small supporting cast starts to find their own voices. Melissa Joan Hart has been a gifted comic actress since her pre-teen Nickelodeon years, and it's to her credit than the somewhat edgy Mel Burke remains a thoroughly likable character. Joey Lawrence, himself a 30+ year t.v. veteran, is solid as well, with a slightly more believable character with which to work.
One word of caution: Don't be fooled by the "ABC Family" logo. Melissa & Joey, while never really wallowing in gutter humor, can aim low with the best (or worst?) of them at times. Still, for appropriate ages, it's as good as anything on network television at the moment. Whether you consider that a compliment or not probably depends on how much t.v. you watch. My wife and I watch quite a bit, and even though the show IS very familiar at times, it's still entertaining and fun to watch. And really, does a sitcom need to do more than that?
Though I'm pretty sure she knew I liked it, when I suggested we name our baby Lennox...
Sure this show is on Netflix, but having the collection is a lot better. It could be taken off netflix anymonth.
