Just thinking about this series fills me with so many emotions; good, bad and everything in between. I've watched a lot of tv shows in my time and in my 'humble' opinion nothing can steal this show's crown as the most intelligent, warm, painful, joyous thought provoking entertaimment of all time.

One of the most beautiful and brilliant series ever made. You can't help fall in love with the fabulous Fisher family as you laugh and cry with them. I strongly recommend everyone watch this heart warming show.
