Speechless Season 1 Review

21 September 2016 2:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

ABC’s new fall sitcom, Speechless, knows exactly what kind of show it wants to be from the get-go. It’s here to tell the chaotic, yet endearing stories of the Dimeo family, which includes a special needs teenager with cerebral palsy named Jj (Micah Fowler). But more importantly, it wants to be hilarious and somewhat disarming along the way, no matter which character is on screen.

Weirdly enough, this is one of those rare pilots that lends about the same comedic weight to every main character (and a good deal of the supporting cast, as well). Minnie Driver plays the family’s eccentric mother, Maya, who uproots the family for the sixth time in two years in order to find the “right fit” for Jj. We learn soon enough that she’s truly in search of a place that’s good enough »
