I'm curious if anyone else here follows this show; the premiere of Season Two was last night (following the much-hyped debut of Brad Garret's old partner Patricia Heaton and Kelsey Grammer in "Back To You" which - IMO - was pretty much "meh") and it was, if you'll allow me a chance at hyperbole, SPECTACULAR. My brother and I were nearly on the floor laughing; Garret even busted out his Herman Munster impression, which I haven't seen since the heyday of "Comic Strip Live" (us.imdb.com)!
To me, "Til Death" is what "Married ... with Children" would have been had that show come out now instead of in the 90s. Hell, the first episode last season even lifted the entire plotline from MWC's pilot almost down to the last detail: beaten-down husband (Al/Eddie) pushes his new next-door neighbor (Steve/Jeff) to buy a pool table because he knows that his newlywed wife (Marcy/Steph) won't approve.
Of course, even though the "Til Death" couple have produced an offspring, she's been in all of three episodes (mostly off-camera attending college), so maybe it isn't an exact correlation to "Married ... With Children"; more like "Married ... Without Children".
Anyway, I would highly recommend the show to anyone looking for a good laugh on Wednesday nights (don't let any residual hatred for "Everybody Loves Raymond" shy you away from this one).
I think the problem with the Departed's cast is that Damon, Leo and Jack were all leads, and it was hard to pick one over the other or to deliniate one to the supporting category. The one that did get in (Marky Mark)
