The show's theme music is from the Overture to the opera Ruslan and Ludmilla, which was written by the Russian composer Mikhail Glinka during the 1830s and '40s. Glinka is seen as a Founding Father of Russian classical music and the Overture is still a staple in the repertoires of symphony orchestras around the world. See more »

love this show!
24 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Oh my god this show has me laughing in so many ways. people talk bad about the first episode. It is like any show and you are just getting to know the characters. The content is a serious matter and is brought to light in a most hilarious way. After that it takes off like fire. Fantastic writing, clever funny lines and a great connection. I love the characters. I hardly ever laugh out loud while watching TV. I have had plenty of truly great laughs. People shouldn't be judging a show because they don't the matter of talking about teenage pregnancy, or alcoholism. Its great to see these topics discussed in a open way. A funny one. But at the same time these topics are taken seriously.
