Great potential, lousy execution
10 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had a different review of this show before. But I think that wanting to like it led me to be more lenient on it than it ever deserved. It was a bad show. A great premise that failed due to absolutely wretched writing. Which shows you how much CBS cared about it in the first place.

It can't be that hard to work with the material that the Twitter/Facebook page provided. At least not if you're a WRITER. Sure, I probably couldn't have been much funnier. I'm also not in that career path, employed by a television network no less. This show WRITES ITSELF. The problem might be that the writers took that statement too literally. Is it really that hard to make a caricature of a cantankerous, witty old man when you were gifted numerous insights in to his personality?

The failings of this show were the flimsy plots and mediocre jokes. Provided, each episode might give you a couple of solid laughs. However, that means little, especially when you consider what we SHOULD have gotten from it. It should have been the breakout hit of the season.

If you didn't catch $#*! My Dad Says during its brief run, you didn't miss much at all. Just a lot of wasted potential. It tried to be edgy in certain avenues, but ultimately came across as a watered-down blow off.
