Inspired by the true stories featured by Epic Magazine, "Little America" will go beyond the headlines to look at the funny, romantic, heartfelt, inspiring and surprising stories of immigrants in America, when they're more relevant now than ever.
Centers on Nicholas (Josh Thomas), a typical 25-year-old still living at home with his single dad and two teenage half-sisters, who is not particularly helpful in raising his siblings, one of which has autism. However, when their dad becomes terminally ill, the girls have to cope with not only a devastating loss but also the realization that Nicholas is the one who will have to hold it all together.
I haven't watched Please Like Me at all, but this seemed cute from the ads. I think the two daughters are both great actresses and characters, and I'm enjoying the relationship between Nick and Alex. I thought Nicholas's character was unnecessarily childish during some of the scenes in the first half of the pilot, but he got better even in just that episode. I'm finding the relationships between Genevieve and her friends inexplicable and inconsistent, but maybe that's how teenage friendships are in the real world? I certainly hope that group is not the focus of too many episodes, though.
I will definitely keep watching! It's not perfect, but it's early, and it's definitely not the "unwatchable trash" that certain people with some underlying philosophical differences would like you to believe..
