How did this series get to six seasons? There was an article posted the other day talking about how this series keeps getting better and a writer friend who had bowed out early asked me if that were true - and it absolutely is. What the show has done extremely well is turn into, essentially, the new Friends. By bumping up the female parts they've struck some kind of universal chord. The writing team finds freshness in running gags that few shows can. It keeps finding ways to stretch and pull the characters in new directions without changing who they've always been. This isn't my favourite kind of show by any means, but it's always enjoyable. There's a reason why it's the most watched show in Canada.
