a great family show

I absolutely love this show so far. While the show does poke fun at the father's blindness, it's not done in an insulting way. I, myself, am blind, and I find the jokes extremely amusing. So far, there hasn't been anything I find inappropriate in the show. I hope it lasts, because it's one of the few shows on tv now that I think a family can watch together.
