very forced sitcom
13 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Melanie Clayton (Erinn Hayes) is seven weeks pregnant and she's announcing her engagement to Sam Briggs (Kyle Bornheimer) at the family gathering. In the pilot, he meets his future in-laws Angela (Nancy Lenehan) and judge Dick Clayton (Kurtwood Smith) in a diaper. He pees into the food and Dick slips on his pee. He mistakenly assumes that Dick is dead and tells the family with the distressing false bad news. The show expands with her sister Sarah (Jessica St. Clair) and her husband Chad (Hayes MacArthur), brother David (RonReaco Lee) and heart-broken Chloe (Brooke Nevin). Sam's friend Adam (Nick Kroll) comes to try to fix the painting of Dick that Sam ruined and starts hooking up with Chloe.

Through incompetence, bad luck and nervousness, Sam is the butt of all of the jokes in the show. It is very forced even more so than the usual sitcom. Every week has Sam doing something stupid. It gets a bit repetitive. Kyle Bornheimer is an OK comedic actor although his usual nervous act does get tired. It helps a lot whenever Erinn Hayes joins him in the stupidity. She needs to be more than the girlfriend trying to placate her parents and encourage her boyfriend. She needs to be as big of an idiot as Sam is.
