Wrong time, wrong format
28 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rick and Ronnie are struggling in their marriage. He has a high-pressure job, she takes care of the kids, and they've hit a rut in their relationship. Andy is Rick's child-like brother, who dwells in a trailer parked in the couple's driveway. At work, Rick has befriended embittered boss Bernie and snarky coworker Jordan. Christine is Ronnie's nosy best friend.

Based on the stand-up act of comedian Rick Reynolds, there's definitely a show to be made out of his material... but this wasn't it. The tone was way too dark and awkward for a 3-camera studio-audience sitcom - and it hit at a time when TV comedies were all hoping to be the next "Friends." The performances were good all around but the writing felt dumbed-down-for-TV and the canned laughter seemed out of place.

20 years later, if this were done single-camera without an audience and outdated TV censorship restrictions, it could be a wildly successful show. Unfortunately, this one was just a matter of wrong time, wrong format.
