Super funny over the top witty and very enjoyable
30 September 2015 | by DableoSee all my reviews

I loved this show so much starting from the acting to the superbly written script. The concept overall is unique to the usual sitcom world of 5 friends or such stuff which is very refreshing (it being the super famous actor lawyer and his little brother and father who are real lawyers and how them and the entire family play out life). Also the script is actually funny and is hyper complemented by the acting and the excitement and pace of the shooting and directing made for a very enjoyable pilot. I highly recommend you watch the pilot you will like if you are tired of sitcoms with drama monologues this one is just pure funny. Loved it fox with this & Brooklyn nine-nine and empire you are crushing. Also big kudos to the directing as it is setting a very brilliant manner.
