Well, I gave it a chance. I'm writing this review after seeing the first 5 episodes.
This is overall an unfunny comedy. The situations are crude and not funny at all. There is lots of vomiting, physical injuries, young kids in serious distress, drugs, smoking, even a gross dude clipping his toenails etc.
Kaitlin Olson looks like trash, and she is the poor yet street smart aunt who takes the 3 children of her rich sister under her supervision because their parents were forced to flee the country because of tax invasion.
With that premise the writers could have done a far better job. Maybe a little "fish out of the water" or poor vs. rich jokes, or some funny conflicts between the aunt and the independent older niece. Unfortunately this is not the case.
There aren't any actual jokes, not even a funny dialog, and the obsession to present the youngest nephew always injured and grotesquely weird is a very bad choice.
Overall. Unfunny crude comedy without any actual jokes or funny dialogs. After seeing 5 episodes, I think it is a waste of time.
