After two years hiding out in his grandfather's retirement residence, Stock Burton is forced back into his small town where he must come to terms with the troubled past that led to his early retirement.
The series Started on a strong foot ,, need to make sure that the fast stressed comedy flowing and not be overpowered by the romance.
The pilot looked good,, the Idea of the series was mostly brought out of a the Rom-Com movie styles but here in a short fast comedy with a full-on powerful romantic scene in the final couple of scenes .. make you so pushed to want more of that same story and so eager to know what's to be happening next !!! you kinda feel for "Kevin" and his slap of bad luck he's getting in all of his life matters ..
Barbie Adler is a really good writer but even a better producer as she did almost 50 episodes of "How I Met Your Mother" ... i bet you could whiff a bit of that style scent and some other episodes of "My Name Is Earl" so she doesn't need my validation on her job ... but doesn't mean the script should't get any stronger if she needs the show to survive on ABC .
As for the cast they're all well picked Noah Reid with that stressed out fearful fast comedy and his face is fresh on the screen so bravo .. and indeed the comedy bits from the other characters like that trainer and the guy in the office and the boss .. i'd really love to see more effective bits from them .
So overall ,, the series started on a strong foot ,, it's Genre is comedy so the comedy needs to be flowing and not allow the romance to overpower it ... noting that the romance her is so powerful and necessary but the comedy comes first.
