Better without Mary
19 June 2017 | by yastepanovSee all my reviews

This show wasn't bad, though the leading man was a poorly developed character.

Actually, the notion of a woman in her late-30s or in her forties suddenly thrust into the role of being "Mom," is a good concept and "Mary" became the weak link. I would've perhaps made the man an engineer and a widower (so the female lead would be stuck as the "only mom" in the show, having failures and successes as she stumbles toward late motherhood with older children.

Elf an can be a delight, but the show often left me confused as to if the couple was living together (whole episodes would pass without her going home) and so on. The boy and older girl seemed very mismatched and neither were believable as the male leas's children.

It needed a renovation at least. Make changes and try again.
