Fred Savage and Rob Lowe are great as brothers
2 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Fred Savage and Rob Lowe are great as brothers and have instant chemistry. You quickly wonder why Savage hasn't been acting more(I read he was directing mostly).

The best comedy pilot I have watched in quite awhile - couldn't stop laughing. This is the opposite of many recent "comedies" where the laughs are few and mostly just a chuckle at best.

The Secondary characters also seem like they will be good and contribute also.

If you liked Rob Lowe in Wayne's World or his direct TV commercials, you'll like this...
