While it occasionally runs to the absurd — a blind date who won't eat food other people have touched and brings his own chicken to a restaurant — it stays for the most part within the realm of recognizable human relations, and lets you feel something for its characters. This was not a luxury Seinfeld ever afforded anyone, and it's nice to see the star getting to play something less cerebrally conceived, less obsessive-compulsive and more ordinarily well-rounded.

A 2007 People magazine review concerning the episode "My Big Fat Sober Wedding" described the show as maintaining its freshness well into the second season. The show received 3 out of 4 stars.
