Storyline

JJ and his family move to a new home to be in a school district where JJ will have a full-time aide to "speak" for him. The aide is a female who ends up annoying JJ and continually wanting to quit because they just don't get along. JJ's mom complains to the principal of the new school about the lack of a wheelchair ramp at the front of the school, and seems to have a reputation for advocating for her son throughout the area. JJ is nominated for president at his new school and is initially reluctant, but then after some consideration decides to run for the position after all.

Good enough to be canceled in 13 weeks!
22 September 2016 | by Robert W. AndersonSee all my reviews

I'm loving this so far! It's good to see a show shining a light on political correctness. This first episode introduces us to the main characters. And they are a wildly varied bunch. It looks like this show is going to take on all the stereotypes and all the things that the PC crowd loves. Many of the adult actors are people we've seen on some of the most popular series' on television. But my favorite is Minnie Driver. She great as the matriarch of this strange family, that's a challenge to any neighborhood they live in. And there's been a lot. And what really sealed it for me is that they managed to write a story about a strong woman. Without making the male lead and nincompoop.
