It's as good as any other Chuck Lorre show, and of course every show he does is pretty good. This one might even be a little better than the rest. The whole "redemption" theme might be a little tired and well-worn, but that's about the worst thing I can think of, other than I am yet to be impressed by the 14-year-old daughter character. I've been a huge fan of Allison Janey since Private Parts and The West Wing, so it is great to see her in a great role in a good show. She could park her shoes under my bed any time she wants.
