Out of Practice is my favorite show
16 January 2006 | by AmcfanL88See all my reviews

Out of practice is my favorite show. I first started watching it because I like Stockard Channing and I thought the whole cast is good they are all really funny and they all work well together. I love how the parents are divorced and they still get along good for the kids and I love that the daughter is a lesbian. I also love how the family gets along, I think its really funny and loving at the same time. The writing is really good how they put comedy and drama together. I think its a great idea putting a family like that on T.V. Its a lot better then all the other shows that are on. I got my whole family hooked on it. I cant miss a episode. GREAT SHOW
