They had an effective mix of laughter and tears in this week's episode. It seemed more tears at the end, but if you recall in the first season, there were tears there also. I'm thinking in particular when his oldest daughter is at the mall and he visualizes her as a little girl in a flash back of sorts--there were many poignant moments before, so I think the ability to convey nuance just might help them pull this off. I know that we'll keep watching.

James Garner has always been an excellent actor who handled the comedy well, without being a comedian. Clear back to Maverick.
