There are VERY few current shows we watch.
Not like when I was a kid and the arrival of the fall preview TV Guide in the mailbox was like Christmas morning. Then there was the dog-earring of the pages of favorites...

I like this show, it's funny. Even if it is a bit silly I love the laughs and the actors.

Meh. Finally watched it last night, and wasn't impressed. Predictable, tired jokes. Some great actors, but the characters were so over done it was kind of embarrassing to see such good talent being used in roles like this. Situations were some 20-year-old's idea of what it must be like to be a retiree.

Too bad Hollywood doesn't want to do a more realistic show about retirees. Hire some writers who actually have a few years under their belt, and have them share real stories from their lives. The truth is actually pretty funny, if you give it a chance.

Well said.

I think many viewers underestimate the role of writers in TV shows today. Because the actors are up front and center, and get all the PR, when a show like BBT is a hit, the actors become both rich & famous. Just as important are the writers. You need great actors, but you really need great writing.

Together... you have a hit.
