Personal ranking of episodes, best to worst: 1-3-4-2.

The show is funnier when it is staking out through dialogue how this family can be both weird/terrible and relatable/wholly-goodhearted. It's less successful on zany sitcom gags.

I have a lot of inchoate feelings about this show. Something worth pointing out is: they're doing a great job of being funny without being offensive.

Ratings are holding steady.

There's an absence of meanness in the show's humor that I really enjoy - like, that whole "we're not assholes, we're idiots" runner holds true throughout.
