Nothing new under the sun
11 October 2013 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Two families are forced together when their kids have an unplanned pregnancy. Ricardo Chavira and Mike O'Malley play the dads, and they don't get along. Mary McCormack is one of the moms who also has an unexpected pregnancy. Justina Machado is the other mom. The actors playing the teens aren't anything special. The dads' constant bickering is very distracting. Although punching balls is always funny. Mary McCormack has a little more to do, and looks slightly better by comparison.

There is nothing new in this show. At least they don't have the annoying laugh track. But other than getting punched in the nuts, there isn't much to laugh at. The teens aren't funny at all. The dads are barely tolerable. Only Mary McCormack is watchable.

The emphasis seems to be about the adults. I think that misses the comedic point. It seems much more logical and funny if they center the show on the kids. They have lots more to deal with. You can introduce their friends. The parents are better off as co-stars. When push comes to shove, there is no rules to say that in-laws have to be in each other's lives 24-7. But there are reasons that parent-kid relationship is 24-7.
