    Raising Hope is one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. It knows how to make us laugh and have a good time.

    Fun, quirky and has a lot of heart.

    So pleasantly surprised. Netflix tried for a year or two to get me to watch this before I finally gave in. Really didn't think I was going to like it, but was hooked almost from the very start. One of the very few sitcoms that I have/will watch all the way through more than once.

    Pleasantly surprised by the fresh and inventive ideas in this show. There are wonderful details hidden in the writing about the characters that I really appreciate. Quirky and delightful. Lots of fun.
