Embodying the sort of lowest common denominator sensibility that by-the-numbers family fare such as "Melissa & Joey" cater to, Cilli is the everyman of TV watchers: hopelessly drawn in to every hackneyed plot, amused by every ham-fisted joke, and deliciously scandalized by the slightest dalliance with anything approaching sexuality.
In short, this series is brimming with understated brilliance, and makes us want to shout, "Oh, no he didn't!" if only we could do it without having to punch ourselves in the face. More, please!
