I don't think you fly from Germany to Los Angeles for a weekend trip. The flight alone can be nearly 14 hours.
I caught this series on Amazon, and did not watch it during its original run on CBS. I enjoyed it, but also see how it eventually ran out of steam. The cast is great, but way too large. It also felt like the writing dropped off substantially after the first season. I don't love it when storylines require otherwise normal characters to be stupid and it felt like they went back to that well way too much. The finale also felt tacked on and weird. My assumption was that they had a good idea that the show wouldn't be renewed, so they tried to give things a definite end, while leaving the story open enough to undo all those decisions. For example, the idea that a German company would hire Matt as its Art Director, but seemingly not communicate with him in English (when there was no suggestion the character understood German) was bizarre. Tim and Heather suddenly deciding to have another baby was another strange choice.
All in all, it's a watchable series, and I thought Zoe Lister-Jones was a particular standout.
