A poorly thought out and executed show (at least so far...)
27 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

This show had potential. It could of been the 'National Treasure' of television, albeit it, on a smaller scale. But from the very first episode, it just made too many errors. And those errors flooded into the second episode and only time will tell how long the flood with last.

The show tries to capture the segregation of family members and documents their rekindling through the completion of a series of unimaginative scenarios that will instill in them a greater sense of unity and family.

The show is not in any sense, funny. In fact, the characters are so stereotypical that we wonder whether the writers are still stuck in the early 2000s. We have a doctor, a hot actress wannabe, and the odd-one-out, mentally retarded brother.

And the scenarios they're put through? A game of 'Trivia Pursuit'? WTF?! The amount of wit they try to put into the show especially through the father is extremely annoying and ridiculously cliché! Given the concept the show shouldn't have a longer air-life than one season. But I'd be surprised if they even finish of the season given the lack of quality and substance.

My honest advice: despite how appealing the concept is, this REALLY IS NOT WORTH THE TIME!!!
