Wait and See
At this point, I have mixed feelings about this series. Fred Savage is very genuine and likable in this series, but Rob Lowe as the brother is a let down. Kill off Rob Lowe's character to get another brother that is not too cliche'.
The show is pretty good
I love the show. The first two episodes are great and I only hope it gets better. I love seeing Ben Savage back on TV and Rob Lowe is great at playing the lovable idiot brother. Ben and Rob have great chemistry.
Rob Lowe is great!
