Most Blended Family, Quirky and Sweet
22 December 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I started watching this show because I'm a life-long Greyhound-aholic. While some of the "Hounds" are dogs, there are many more human hounds among the characters. Dog racing is a background for the development of these characters and the central group who become one of the oddest blended families on any sitcom. Not only is this series hilarious, it is surprisingly full of warm moments. Writing, acting, and production values are fine. I hope the show finds support for a second season. Perhaps the global audience will help that happen.

For those who lean toward the animal rights perspective that all racing is enslavement and exploitation, this isn't for you. For people who just love dogs, especially beautiful sighthounds, the Greyhounds are presented as valued living creatures, loved and treated well. If you welcome your dogs to your furniture, you will see your peers among the characters here.

Some of the themes are best left to mature audiences. There's drinking (including by a child), swearing, and a lot of talk about sex regarding legal cases (one character is a defense attorney). I mention this so no one thinks, "Oh, good, a show about dogs...must be OK for my kids."
