A promising show that probably will get worse, sadly
24 February 2018 | by FamousGirlfriendSee all my reviews

This show is much better than I expected, then again, my expectations were somewhere below basement level. The first episodes were not very good, but there are moments that are genuinely hilarious and as the characters develop the show seems to find its pace. Episode 8 had me laughing so hard I actually cried.

LeBlanc and Snyder have great chemistry and the kids are good. They aren't the problem, the problem is the writing. The idea that a man who starts taking more (that is,equally as much) responsibility for his family is somehow in for a shock because omg parenting is hard, is terribly outdated. LeBlanc does this in a heartwarming day; of course everyone wants to be the fun parent, and it's good that he realises that being a parent is more than being fun. It's like his character is on the right track, but the writers still throw really sexist scenarios at him. His character is in many ways too good to be a stupid man child, but still the writers don't seem to have understood this.

Adam (LeBlanc) and Andi (Snyder) are clearly capable of being a grown up, lovable couple that tries really hard to navigate through parenting, but for some reason the writers just have to go there, that murky place with all that stereotyping: men are like this, women like that, etcetera. Adam and Andi are relatable in many ways, so that the writers feel forced to make them less relatable is beyond me.

Sitcoms generally freak me out. If you can't make the comedy stand on its own, without a laugh track showing people when to laugh or not, you're not good at doing comedy. Plus it's just scary watching something together with invisible people with a bad sense of humour. If the producers of this show would just let go of some of those laughs and allow the characters to be a driving force instead of letting old, sexist and cliché ideas of family life take the wheel, this show could really go somewhere.

There's something unique with this show, but that could disappear really quickly if the writers eff it up, and they actually seem to want to do that.
