I know this might not be the biggest news but damn, I loved that opening theme song. It is one of the only ones that I still get excited about whenever I hear it. And with all the shows these days using already famous songs as themes its nice to think back when some were original. I don't know if I am not the only one who cares, but being a fan of the show this hurts.
The weak link to the Cleveland show is Cleveland. He just sucks the air out of the scene. I loved the Rollo B-plot especially with him as the Gopher and the EMTS pulling his friends out with the jaws of life.
