Fans of character-driven dramas will see this show as a gift. It finds its footing as the season goes on, and emerges as smart, funny, touching and a very appealing humanity. Sure, it gets soap-ie at times and not every situation is realistic, but it's a fun and intelligent ride nonetheless. I liked every character and the acting is top drawer. Special kudos to Sally Field and Calista Flockhart. Can't imagine anyone not liking this show.
