Jack and Rebecca's kids are now eight, and Jack and Rebecca are having and have had continuing issues concerning all three. On top of it all, Rebecca has been doing all the heavy lifting keeping peace in the family, while Jack has been the best dad whenever he has been around, which is not very often, and becoming less and less so on his own initiative in not wanting to deal with the problems while he drowns his sorrows at a bar with Miguel. The question becomes if their family can withstand all these stresses on it. Meanwhile, Kevin discovers that leaving "Man-ny" is not as easy as just saying that he is quitting the show, as he has a binding two year contract. He is forced to attend a Hollywood party to ask the network bigwigs for forgiveness, something, because of his utter contempt for the show, he isn't sure he can do despite the consequences on his lucrative career. He wants Kate to go to the party with him for support, something she is resisting if only because of feeling ... Written by Huggo

We Get to Meet the Folks
7 June 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This series movies nicely into the next phase. I want to say "the future" bur if you watch the show, you know why this doesn't work. Here we get to see the petulance of some, the tragedy of some, and the baggage they have accumulated. I like that these characters are not perfect. Kevin really bugs me. At his age, the opportunity to put in two years to make millions seems a no-brainer. He could continue his legitimate acting career at the same time and have star power. He is so whiney. He has already got the reputation for being a stud boy, so doing it a couple more years wouldn't hurt him. Then there's the weight problem and a realistic look at a person in a sad place. Finally, the black man whose brother treated him like dirt and who was left in front of a firehouse, who has a perfection complex. And, enter the birth father. And we have a really sad figure. The episode ends with quite a surprise. I think we're in for quite a lot of those.
