Odd Premise kinda works
17 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Benjamin Goodwin (Beau Bridges) is dead and he leaves a set of video tape will for his three children. Chloe (Becki Newton) is a failed actress who can't find her place in the world. Henry (Scott Foley) is a successful surgeon, and a failing person. He is schedule to marry but doesn't have the time to see his fiancée. Jimmy (T.J. Miller) is a bumbling petty criminal who sneaks into his daughter's room to see her despite her baby momma.

Obvious the father wants the bring the trio back together and fix their lives from the grave. And it's an odd premise that sorta works. The three actors siblings do a good job. Both TJ Miller and Scott Foley fit their characters perfectly. Becki Newton is a little bit off. She always seems to have a smirk, and much smarter than her character. Although she had a big role in Carter Bays and Craig Thomas 'How I Met Your Mother'.

So far there's only 7 episodes in a summer replacement slot. It doesn't look good for renewal.
