Trivia

In season three Matt and Colleen try to have a baby and are not successful. The actress who plays Colleen however was actually pregnant with her daughter when filming however. 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 »

Fresh comedy. I'll keep watching
23 September 2015 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

It's not great but it's working.

You got some capable new actors like Thomas Sadoski (Newsroom) and Zoe Lister Jones (Whitney), plus some veterans like Dianne Wiest and James ("Barbra Streisand") Brolin.

Surprisingly enough Colin Hanks is credited first despite having the smallest and least distinguish role. I find him subpar, far behind the other actors of his generation.

The writing is quirky with a sometimes heavy tone on sex. Basically is a family comedy told through the separate stories of different family members.

You might not get frantic laughs with this one but the pace is good, the impossible situations funny in a weird way and the producers spare us from an annoying laugh track.

I don't if it will survive the season but I'll keep watching...

UPDATE: My review was based on the Pilot. After I have seen all 22 episodes I'll say IT IS a funny comedy and I hope for a 2nd season.
