    Grade A awesome! If anyone can walk the line between upper middle class WASP and all of the quirky facets Sabrina has described about her father, it’s Sabrina.

    This show makes me smile. It’s just so cute and it’s not about these high concepts or too perfect life stuff… It reminds me that everyone else has their silly weird quirky lives and it’s good to finally have that on t.v.

    Awesome! All I can say is that Jimmy better not take his stapler.

    I was hoping for Eddie Izzard, but this is a good choice too.
