A live action Family Guy?
5 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The premise of this show wasn't bad, but it's timing and time slot may have done it in.

Alien Brady Bunch? Perhaps. The baby had funny lines that became catchphrases around my house. Alien kids from Henson's Muppet Shop, so they were quality. I would have liked to see more, and see the episodes I missed which may have given exposition on the looks of the kids...

Well written, to my mind. Easy to watch, laughs abound in each episode. Is that so bad? It was supposed to be a comedy. However, most well written comedies don't survive anywhere on TV, much less basic cable. Such a shame.

Nice lighthearted fare, safe for the whole family.
