Of course, there's some sex and swearing. That's totally new in a family sitcom.There's real pain dissension and disagreements, which is rarely seen in sitcoms. All in the Family and The Honeymooners being two good examples of exceptions.There's negativity towards the kid. That's pretty new.They're broke, that hasn't been on TV in sitcoms for years.In other ways, it's a traditional sitcom.
