'Raising Hope': A Family Picture Is Worth a Thousand Curse Words (VIDEO)

'Raising Hope': A Family Picture Is Worth a Thousand Curse WordsTaking a family photo is always kind of a drag. Little kids are running around and not paying attention to the photographer. Someone invariably blinks or looks away from the camera, right when the picture is shot. Plus, there's the stress of having all your relatives in one room at the same time.

And this is what happens if you have a normal family. But the pain is increased a thousandfold if you're part of a completely dysfunctional family ... like, say, the Chance clan on 'Raising Hope' (Tue., 9PM ET on Fox).

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

On the latest episode, incompetent young dad Jimmy (Lucas Neff) realizes that he doesn't have any photos featuring his new daughter Hope. But what can you do with a family like this? When taking a snapshot involves pulling your hair out from stress, and wearing horrendous matching turtlenecks and sweaters, then it might be time to throw in the towel.

Every picture is worth a thousand words, or so they say. But in this case, those words may end up being angry words, or just plain old expletives and profanity. Can Jimmy get a shot at a good-looking family portrait? And is there any hope for Hope's relatives? Do the Chances stand a chance? Will we ever stop making bad name-related puns? Yes. We will stop with the stupid puns, we promise. We'll stop making them right about ... now.
