Storyline

Mort has a secret that he really wants to tell his three adult children, who are so self-absorbed they don't see that something has changed for divorced, girlfriendless dad. Even when he invites them to dinner en masse to share his news, somehow, the conversation becomes about them. The secret unfolds, though, when he comes home and sees his married daughter getting intimate with her ex. Now, he knows her secret; she learns his; and the dysfunctional family finds one secret after another being exposed. Written by Jwelch5742

So annoying
5 January 2016 | by vickydanvilleSee all my reviews

I began watching this series by accident one night. I am not someone aware of the issues that face trans-gender people but do know a couple of people that have recently began the transition and i thought this series may help the masses to be more accepting of difference. However unfortunately all i have found in both the first and second series are a group of self obsessed selfish individuals and i couldn't dislike the characters more if i tried, there lives are so bizarre, twisted and meaningless and all the seem to do is hurt everyone around them, not one of the characters actually seems to care about any of the others. I am not a prude but I think it is over sexed and untrue to life. Its not funny, its not enlightening, its not even interesting. What it is, is mundane, at times offensive on a number of levels and unbelievable, i do not feel it offers a true insight into any families life but just serves to try and shock, which it also does not achieve.

I will watch to the end of series 2 in the hope that something good will come from this complete waste of my time.
