Couple of the things I like are 1) you can tell the writers have families of their own and have thought the thoughts we all have. Like when the dad (Phil, wife, married 18 yrs, 3 kids) is told their neighbor’s wife divorced the husband…and one of the kids says that must be horrible. And Phil says “well no now he has all this freetime and can pursue all the dreams he never could when he was married…” What husband hasn’t thought that! (Ok, or wife).
And 2) Unlike most shows where the comedy is sort of 1 dimensional…what you’re watching in the foreground, the main dialog, MF has things going on that you might miss if you’re not paying attention. Sometimes it’s just silly like the character Cam is telling another character how he just likes to stay out of trouble and not stir things up…as he’s stirring the punch in a punchbowl. Or there’s a better one where the mom is telling Cam and Mitch (her brother and his partner) about what a good parent she is…and as she’s doing this her son walks by off to the side, grabs the knife block off the counter, Cam grabs the block, Mitch then hands him a bowl of fruit, and off her son goes. All this as a little side thing while she’s lecturing Cam and Mitch. Just awesome.
