One of the many things about this sitcom that makes it unique is that they didn't use a romance story-line as a hook-up. For that thing it is one (if not the one)of the greatest comedies ever. No mention the web of situations (I don't care how many absurd coincidences - like the case of the whale)somehow it felt more real than, for example, How I Met Your Mother. That's a sitcom I can´t stand. I don't know. Suddenly in one generation leap people went more stupid. Or maybe is just the story-line that catchs them.
