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

Horribly overrated
5 January 2015 | by jahgreenSee all my reviews

The sheer unlikability and unreality of the other characters totally distracts from what could have been a funny, tender, and dramatic story about the Jeffrey Tambor character.

This show is straight out of current entertainment belief that if you make enough penis and vagina jokes, or say f*** enough times, that's enough to be funny. "Hey, let's write a bunch of 'spit roast' jokes, that'll be a scream." What it really means is that the writers are lazy and just want to go for the scandalous and shocking rather than excellence. Then they claim that they should get awards for being scandalous and shocking, even when it's crappy scandal and shock.

Too bad, as there is an excellent show somewhere under all the superficial dreck the writers put on the screen. You just can't see it.
