The original show was horrible. I don't know what reviewers expected. This actually isn't that bad. People are all upset with the sex references. Probably Candice Cameron's Christian fundie fanbase. They made the show for people who grew up with it, not necessarily for kids. They struck the right balance. I'm surprised Candice didn't raise a stink about it though. Her brother was a tyrant on his show when it came to dialogue and storylines. Everything had to be pure and holy. Everyone on the show looks great; like they were put on ice. It's scary. Apparently, they're using the original couch.
