I really appreciate the tone of interactions between these two.
Love the show. Just what I needed.

These two wonderful person's have such a great way to look at the aspects of the troubles we all deal with in relationships. The insight offered into ones own feelings makes you want to be a better person. They show in a clear and conscise manner how you can feel just how you want too, all you need to do is let yourself. Great stories, great advice, and great Midwesterners, (I am assuming)!
