Canceled BUT is it worth watching its one and only season?
Canceled BUT is it worth watching its one and only season? (available on the Internet etc.) In one short answer: No.
That doesn't mean that it was a bad show. Just mediocre.
It is inspired by the life of Michael J. Fox, with his disease (Parkinson's) and all, and it is basically a family sitcom. It has its own style of narration, with each member occasionally breaking the fourth wall looking at the camera and basically stating his or hers intentions.
There is no fake laugh track in this one, and for me that's a plus.
The premise was basically each kid of the family trying to outsmart each other and all of them their parents who were pretty smart themselves. That, and some secondary plots about M.J.Fox's job (an anchor in a TV channel) etc.
So, you can pass this one. It was occasionally funny, but overall was mediocre.
