Storyline

The story of a middle-class family coping with the sudden passing of their beloved patriarch Patrick, a whimsical inventor who touched the lives of all who knew him. Devastated, his family finds hope in a guide book he created for his sons. The book is a how-to guide for childhood that inspires fantasies for his youngest son, Wyatt (Gabriel Bateman). While in his fantasy world, Wyatt reconnects with his father and learns life skills that help him navigate the real world. The series also stars Erinn Hayes as Beth, the matriarch of the family who is trying to raise her boys as a single parent.

Great for the whole family!
13 April 2018 | by mattscotthSee all my reviews

It's always a challenge finding something that our whole family can sit down and watch together. This show definitely fits the bill. The show is fun, while dealing with some heavier issues at times. But mostly, it's just a funny, enjoyable show with great actors executing great writing.

As a viewer, I especially like the way the show deals with some of the struggles that younger kids face. Does it make a profound impact? No. But that's not the point. It's a light-headed look at being a family, dealing with loss and navigating the waters of life.

I would love to see this show come back for a second season. And my kids would too. This is good quality, family entertainment at its best. We need more shows like this for younger kids.
