Another wildly popular sitcom (with fans and critics) that really doesn’t do much for me. It’s just your same old “dude doesn’t like responsibility and wife loves him anyway” sitcom trope. While I’m glad they don’t focus on the children too much (as children acting rarely adds to a comedy), their general absence along with Ray’s self-absorbed, whiny personality really makes it hard to like this show.
That said, the supporting cast is pretty good. I love Peter Boyle, and he produced most of the laughs I’ve had while watching.
