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

Bittersweet, Funny, and Immensely Moving. Must not be missed.
8 February 2014 | by WheresmandelaSee all my reviews

This is the story of a family, relationships, the lies we tell ourselves and each other. Dark yet warming, the pilot takes its time introducing its characters, revealing their deeply held flaws. Though the writing is naturalistic and a joy, the acting is what reveals the full possibilities of this wonderful series. Jeffery Tambor is a revelation, and his acting here merits Emmy consideration. Add to that the acting of Gabby Hoffman and Jay Duplass as the conflicted son and you have a sparkling main cast. I cannot recommend this pilot enough, and I urge you to watch it, enjoy it, and if you love it, tell Amazon as much. I eagerly await a continuation of this Families story.
