GREAT comedy!
9 September 2011 | by backitupwithfactsSee all my reviews

This was one of the funniest shows on television. It wasn't PC enough for the world we live in now. Don made a wonderfully crotchety old man who was somewhat of a racist and bigot. You laughed the entire show. Too bad we don't know how to laugh at ourselves anymore. Sad commentary on society.

To further expand on our society, try to find these episodes anywhere. it's like they've buried them in a tomb to be opened in the year 2680 AD or something. Is a humorous old man something we need to shield society from? One day we'll look back on this and say, "what the heck was wrong with us?"
