    "I love the way this show is set and the subtle way they tell their subliminal jokes. It's subtle enough to not be understood by its younger audience, but obvious enough to make the adults roll on the floor laughing. This show is weird, but in a good way. A lil ole weirdness in everyone's lives is good"

    "Love how this show plays with stereotypes while fighting against it all at the same time. Me and my grandpa (who shares the same views as the grandpa in the show, might i add) totally love this show and made us grow closer ever since my dad left to go buy cigarettes last year and never came back"

    "although the premise of this show is funny, i feel as if its a "less funny" version of family guy, with the way it showcases its jokes. its still good though, but it could be better"

    "I used to watch this show a lot with my brothers. I love the time-travelling aspect to it and how the principle of Bushido was incorporated with other modern elements. 5/5"
