Finally a sitcom with real music and comedy
18 September 2015 | by katbro-84824See all my reviews

Dear God I hope this show isn't getting canceled! It's a beautiful blend of comedy, drama & great music. Haven't laughed out loud to a sitcom since Seinfeld until this show came along.

I'm so sick of reality TV so it's refreshing to see that someone has taken the time to create a show using music as a platform to develop an interesting dynamic of characters and comedy.

And to the guy hating on this show due to the Irish potato famine and an island surrounded by fish: ITS A FICTITIOUS COMEDY, GET OVER IT! If that offends you, then Family Guy shouldn't even be aired!

Great music, Gillies & Leary have amazing father-daughter chemistry, Elaine Hendrix's performances blew me away, didn't know she could actually ACT....LOVE her in this show!

Hoping another season is soon to come!
