Dysfunction at its best and worst. Alex and Valerie, two dysfunctional siblings who grew up in a unsurprisingly dysfunctional household who are just continuing what they know. Valerie in the process of getting divorced moves herself and her daughter into her brother's house where shenanigans continue.
Every episode is told in the 4 mini-stories within 1 episode. The characters consist of a 4 couples: 3 adult children and their children plus their parents. Lots of comedic things happen. Despite their being 4 separate stories all the characters weave in and out. It does remind me a bit of Modern Family like others have said but it definitely isn't the same show.
While the show may not have been everyone's cup of tea it was something I enjoyed. Dysfunctional family members at its finest. To me it's one of those shows that shows you get a 'family is important' vibe.
This show isn't my ultimate favorite and it's not something I got hooked on per se, but I do enjoy the premise and seeing how they work even if I think it a bit improbable. I'm sorry to hear about Peter MacNicol's exit as I've enjoyed his work on previous shows. Interested to see how the new season will show us different digital crimes.
Quality TV at it's best! The first season follows the investigation after the murder of a young boy in a very quiet town in England, the second season continues on about that same murder but follows the trial this time. There's also a secondary investigation into Sandbrook in the second season related to the haunted past of Detective Hardy. Interested to see what they do with a third season given that the story lines have been wrapped up.
Excellent crime show, I will agree with some others that it may have gotten repetitive somewhat. It was enjoyable for the will they/won't they of Castle and Beckett aka Caskett. I feel like it might have taken a little too long to have resolved the issue, but this is my personal opinion. There's not much variation in the plot storylines lately though which can be a bummer and sometimes it feels like they're reaching.
Been a long time fan of this show. It's had its ups and down as far as writing goes. It doesn't seem as strong as the early seasons. I'm ambivalent about the rotation of interns throughout the Jeffersonian since Zach's departure, but I suppose it does bring new dynamics into the work environment. Booth and Brennan are the major relationship focus but we've had many great other relationships as well: Sweets/Daisy, Hodgins/Angela, Cam/Arastoo, etc...
Show is full of laughs and feels at times. Definitely some interesting family dynamics with Mrs. Wheeler/Bonnie, Danny, and Ben. Bonnie needs to grow up some but I guess it probably wouldn't make for comedic purposes. I'm a little over the Ben/Riley/Danny plot and wish they would resolve it because it's been an emotional rollercoaster. I love the Tucker/Mrs. Wheeler moments where they're being catty to each other.
Show is hilarious. Every character has their place and is unique yet simultaneously belongs as part of the whole Nine-Nine team. Judicious use of guest stars. Show is easy to watch which leads to great binge watching. Andy Samberg plays his character brilliantly. I also love the Jake/Amy will they/won't they but I hope it won't get dragged out forever.
Definitely an over dramatization of a 20-something's life. Show continues to be hysterical from episode to episode. The only thing I don't love so much about it is the drug use that seems like it could be scaled back or not as much of a central point. Illana is definitely marching to her own drum. Overall the show is easy to watch and could easily be a binge watch classic.
