I loved this show when it was on TV and was disappointed it got cancelled. I'm kind of wondering if over-sensitive people weren't behind getting it cancelled and/or attempts to bring back the series. But I don't find the material mean-spirited AT ALL. It's similar to King of the Hill in quality and smart satiric writing. Like-able characters conflicted over trying to do the right thing.
There is an inherent conflict in trying to be good all the time. It can take over your life. I related with the huge board in the whole-foods-type market which tells shoppers what's good and bad. The board is constantly changing and that's how it feels to me in real life. The same people who walked around with bottled water when I was in high school, presumably because the water wasn't good enough, are now judgmental of water bottles. What, you didn't know about landfills at the time?! The list could go on...
That's fair game for comedy. I would recommend this show, and if you don't find humor in it, maybe do a quick gut-check. You may be taking yourself a little too seriously!
