I really like it too. It reminds me so much of 3rd Rock from the Sun
. It's a sitcom and it just happens to have the 3rd person viewpoint from someone like an exchange student from Japan or somewhere very foreign.
They have been trying to make the daughter cuter and more in the story. It works better and gives them more storylines too.
FYI 3rd Rock from the Sun
is being prepped for HD syndication and Blu-ray release by rescanning the 17 year old 35mm original camera negatives.
also FYI even though they are not scifi but mentioned in that article:
That ‘70s Show, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Roseanne, Grounded for Life, A Different World, and The Cosby Show. The conversion will result in more than 1,000 episodes of high-definition content that will be available domestically and internationally as early as fall 2013.
Remastering the shows in HD requires going back to the original episodes and re-scanning all 1,000-plus episodes of the six sitcoms. All of the shows will be delivered in full-screen 16:9 format, and the color will be rebalanced and sharpened for each series.
I just made a TrekBBS thread for 3rd Rock from the Sun remaster
for people that aren't seeing it from this sitcom thread.
