another Poor Single Gal sitcom
20 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Dakota Johnson is great playing the standard cute awkward girl Kate Fox. She's a single mom and living with her older fun-loving loser brother played by Nat Faxon. Lucy Punch is terrific as the wacky best friend BJ. Yes everybody calls her BJ. Maggie Elizabeth Jones is the cute little girl. Everyone is cute, loving, and seems like a one happy family.

I love everybody in this show although the setup is very standard. They seem to enjoy each other and have good chemistry.

This show lasted 1 season with 16 episodes. I do wish they could have continued. There was good potential to continue. It's too bad.
