Billed as a comedy......not quite.
The first hour was hysterical. Especially if you come from a family with at least three kids, as I do. Off the cuff, slightly irreverant humor, great dialogue.
Then it got kinda serious...maybe even tragic towards the end.
I would see it again, and would buy it on DVD for annual Christmas viewing.
BTW, Claire Danes is just stunnning in it!
