not perfect but good enough
23 October 2015 | by Mary_LouSee all my reviews

Grandfathered was a nice surprise! The show is about a sworn bachelor that finds out that he has not only a son but a granddaughter too! The pilot was spoiled by the promo I watched before but still I found it enjoyable. You cannot compare this to strong comedy shows like "modern family" but maybe to shows like "baby daddy" where the main idea is the same: (almost)grown-ups trying to come in terms with parenthood. Not an original idea of course but the execution here is a successful one. John Stamos is doing a good job as the grandpa and the chemistry between the cast is nice too. Paget is lovely in comedy as she can really keep up a straight face when saying something hilarious (Parenthood is pretty much an endless string of moments where you think you've killed your kid.<-I liked that quote) I just watched episode 4 and I have to say that I like that show: it's really sweet, the chemistry is right and there lots of ways to evolve it; this is exactly why I really like family comedy. I really hope this show lasts more than one season!
