More Shatner, Sasso & Sullivan and less (much less) Sadowski please.
16 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Primarily this sitcom revolves around Henry, an out of work journalist, moving back in with Ed, his elderly and opinionated father. If you liked Shatner in Boston Legal, you'll find a lot to like in his portrayal of Ed.

However the big problem lies with Jonathan Sadowski who plays the other main lead Henry. He just doesn't have the comic acting credentials that this role needs, his timing and delivery are massively off. Originally the role of Henry was played by Ryan Devlin, but the series was retooled and the role recast because the studio didn't find him funny enough. You've got to wonder just how much worse he was than Jonathan! Let me be clear, without Sadaowski, I would have rated this series much higher (between 7 & 8 out of 10).

Despite all that, there's potential in this series. Henry's brother and sister-in-law are played by sitcom veterans Will Sasso & Nicole Sullivan and are well cast in their roles. They started off as supporting characters, but as the season has gone on, they've started to feature more prominently, and Henry's role has been scaled back somewhat.
