A darkly comedic drama with strong elements of magic realism about a well off progressive multiracial family from Portland, Oregon made up of husband named Greg, a philosophy professor and disillusioned idealist suffering from midlife identity crisis who regularly cheats on his wife with a prostitute, his wife Audrey, a therapist who always tries to do the right thing and find common ground in every conflict, their three adopted children, a daughter from Liberia named Ashley who runs her own retail fashion website, a son from Vietnam named Duc who is a womanizer and works as a life coach, and a gay son from Colombia named Ramon who is studying video game design and starts suffering from psychic visions in which he keeps seeing the numbers 11:11, and their only biological daughter Kristen who is a junior in high school.

Intriguing, imaginative. Just enough weirdness to warrant anticipation.
13 February 2018 | by beanu-62229See all my reviews

I rewatched the first episode after a slightly distracted initial watch. It's a dense story, with several familiar plotlines somehow twisted in the proper way. I saw a review about it being "leftists". That is missing the boat entirely. There is certainly a political thread, how can there not be in this day & age, but there is a self-deprecating view of the progressive ideals. One that doesn't negate but simply shows depth. Underneath all of this lye a mystery that intrigues and promises some surprise.
