i've got it on tivo because our tv critic raved about it. i've watched a couple of episodes and really like it. and that's someone who ran screaming from the room whenever "everyone loves raymond" or whatever it was called came on. romano is actually a good actor in this ... that good-guy likability kind of undercut by a really seriously f*ed up gambling habit, that is pretty realistically portrayed (in my limited experience). it's not at all schmaltzy and nicely bittersweet.
