Yes, it's familiar but it still feels good
3 September 2018 | by con_auSee all my reviews

Yes, it's basically a recycling of the 30 Rock dynamic and characters. Yes, it's got echoes of Superstore and Parks & Recreation. You'll probably also find some notes if Murphy Brown and 100 other workplace based sitcoms. But reinvention doesn't mean it still can't be good. That's like saying you don't want any more hugs from your mum because you had one already. Briga Heelan and Andrea Martin head the show with their highly dis/functional mother/daughter act but they're superbly supported by an ensemble cast including Adam Campbell as the boss, and source of romantic conflict; the fabulous John Michael Higgins dealing a strong line of schtick as the loveable dinosaur of an anchor; Nicole Ritchie, who has spades of comic timing, as his narcissistic co-anchor; and a clutch of quirky characters in the supporting cast. It's mostly not 'laugh out loud' but there's enough in the scripts and characters to make it good fun, packaged in tight 25 minute eps. I liked the first run and would come back for more.
