Sons and Daughters - like Arrested Development

Did anyone catch this new show, Sons And Daughters, last night? I watched it and was pleasantly surprised. It was quite funny and I liked the format. It reminded me a lot of Arrested Development, a show which I am very upset got cancelled. There are a lot of similarities between the two shows though so I am happy to have Sons And Daughters to watch in place of Arrested Development.

A bonus for me was that I caught two Grateful Dead references in the show

I think it is produced by Loren Michaels of SNL fame.

ABC is the network.

Personally, I don't like the previews and won't watch the show. But, that's me. If y'all dig it, more power to ya!

Give this one a shot DS. It is probably different enough that people who did not likle AD just might like this one (maybe).
