Storyline

The story of Bible-thumping Baptists, beer-swilling bar trash and everyone in between in a small Texas town, contrasted with the appearance-driven world of Hollywood and the hysterical comedy and tender poignancy that come from learning to be yourself and love the family you have instead of the family you want.

Belly laughing...
7 December 2008 | by mayablue88See all my reviews

...is what this show is. I found it by accident and I really can't wait to get Season 1 on DVD! I sure hope the series is renewed. All of these characters really ARE like extended family members and one just can't wait for another episode. I never saw the movie, never even knew it came from a movie, however,the cast for the TV series is the best. No one is better than the rest, they all make this show hilarious. I especially love the names the characters have, not the ordinary names seen on other TV shows! Comedic timing is excellent, just takes one away from the real world and gives you a dose of what is needed in these times, laughter, real entertainment and love, seemingly twisted as it is! Bravo.
