Trivia

Abby Elliott was originally cast as Kate Fox but left the show after the table read for the pilot after it was decided she was too young for the role (the character was written as a 26-year-old while Elliott was 24). She was replaced by Dakota Johnson who at 22 was actually 2 years younger than Elliott. See more »

The feel-series of the year
14 September 2013 | by sorozataddiktSee all my reviews

An absolutely adorable feel-good series, should have never been cancelled. Very likable characters and small town story, enjoyed every minute of it. Dakota (Kate)and Nat(Ben) are brilliant, Maggie(Maddie), Lucy(B.J) and Echo(Tommy) are equally lovely. Only a short 16 episodes season, go watch it right now. A sibling/family comedy is a nice breath of fresh air nowadays. Nothing forced about the acting and situations, all the humor is very smartly integrated and played out. Great use of guest stars as well, particularly loved Brittany Snow. The little Maddie is very cute, of course very wise for her age as it is most of the time in TV land, BJ is gold in every scene and Tommy is possibly my favourite character. Go watch it. Now. Bravo.
