Did You Know?


In the third episode of season one, during the scene where Colin Hanks, James Brolin and Thomas Sadoski's characters are trying to chop down the palm tree in the front yard, the song playing is Bonnie Tyler's "Holding out for a Hero" from the movie Footloose (1984). Dianne Wiest, the matriarch on this show, was also Ariel's mom and the town pastor's wife in "Footloose". See more »

Crazy Credits

The show opens with the printed tag line, "One Big Family. Four Short Stories.". This is a pun. Each episode consists of four complete stories, presented one at a time. But also, the name of the family is "Short". So the four segments that make up each episode aren't just short stories. They're Short stories. See more »

Laugh Out Loud Comedy
11 November 2015 | by dreamgavinoSee all my reviews

Nothing but respect and total love for this show... the entire cast is funny (Jordan, Colin, Zoe,etc.) and the writing is awesome! I love comedy shows that actually make me laugh out loud, and I was pleasantly surprised that each episode made me laugh several times. Other shows try too hard or not enough...other shows have a great cast but bad writers...this one has everything right (much like Goldilock's third pick in the house she trespassed in)...I also appreciate the fact that each episode is broken down into four yummy bite sized servings.. this fresh format helps with the flow of the show's comedic pace... Hope this show gets more love from viewers and critics
