Storyline

Bridgette Bird is a smart, scrappy, young single mom trying to navigate life in South Boston with an extremely unconventional family. She struggles to make ends meet, which leads her to impulsive and at times immature decisions. Above all, Bridgette wants to make a better life for her son. SMILF takes on motherhood, co-parenting, and female sexuality through a raw and unfiltered lens. Don't miss this semi-autobiographical half-hour comedy from the creative mind of Frankie Shaw, an original and fresh new female voice. Written by AnonymousB

SMILF...A Show I'd Like to SKIP
20 November 2017 | by AnonymousFilmLover26See all my reviews

Meh. SMILF is a product of Showtime, with writing and producing by Frankie Shaw, who, kinda sorta, reminds me of Emmy Rossum from Shameless. Only, I feel Emmy Rossum as Fiona Gallagher is much more of an actual character. Frankie Shaw as Bridgette just comes across as desperate and unfunny.

I only watched the first episode of this series, but it's not really anything special, in my opinion. A struggling young mom trying to achieve her dreams while also raising her son (who is played by twin girls, an odd choice)...problem is, we've seen this premise before. Heck, Shameless itself is playing on a version of this storyline...and while it's very much a "mature" show, the crass/sexual aspects never quite overshadow the plot. Not so, in the case of SMILF. Maybe I should have clued into this earlier (the title of the show, after all, is Single Mother I'd Like To ...) but nevertheless, it's not working for me.

Lastly, I can't believe this is billed as a comedy show. This is about the least funny show I've seen in awhile; and I don't think it fits the genre at all.

Shameless does this better, and with more heart/charm. SMILF is just...a wasted Shameless wannabe that may have actually worked better as a feature-length film.
