Storyline

Will Freeman lives a charmed existence. After writing a hit song, he was granted a life of free time, free love and freedom from financial woes. He's single, unemployed and loving it. So imagine his surprise when Fiona, a needy single mom and her oddly charming 11-year-old son, Marcus, move in next door and disrupt his perfect world. When Marcus begins dropping by his home unannounced, Will's not so sure about being a kid's new best friend, until, of course, Will discovers that women find single dads irresistible. That changes everything and a deal is struck: Marcus will pretend to be Will's son and, in return, Marcus is allowed to chill at Will's house, play ping-pong and gorge on steaks, something his very vegan mom would never allow. Before he realizes it, Will starts to enjoy the visits and even finds himself looking out for the kid. In fact, this newfound friendship may very well teach him a thing or two that he never imagined possible - about himself and caring for others. Written by NBC Television

You really want this to be good
24 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With all the high power actors and money they obviously poured into the shooting of this pilot, you really want this series to be good. I love Minnie Driver, I love Al Madrigal, I love Benjamin Stockman. All these great and funny actors should create a really great show. Somehow they don't.

You absolutely hate Minnie from the first millisecond she is on camera. Benjamin is overplaying the quirky cuteness of his character. Al Madrigal is on the screen for maybe 30 seconds in the episode. The whole show is about David Walton (Will) trying to get in the pants of every woman who walks by. That premise creates this inescapable disaster that is not worth watching.

Reviews that compare this show to some of the best television made are obviously written by professional reviewers that are paid by NBC to blanket the web with positive comments about the show. Anyone with eyes and a functioning brain can see there is nothing to see here, just move along.
