Review of Growing Up Fisher

30 minutes

It's not every family that's brought closer together by divorce, but then again, the Fishers aren't exactly typical. Take Mel Fisher, for example. Whether it's chopping down trees, showing his daughter how to drive or playing football with his son, he's never let the fact that he's blind slow him down. Then there's Joyce Fisher, possibly the only mom in Pasadena to smoke a pipe. For her, divorce is like a second coming of age, a chance to be the teen she never was. Just ask '80s-obsessed teenage daughter Katie, whose clothes Joyce is always borrowing (that is, when she's not tagging along with Katie to the mall). At the center of all this is Henry, the Fisher's 11-year-old son. Having always been his dad's eyes, ears and wingman, Henry's less than thrilled when Mel shows up with Elvis, a guide dog... which is also how Henry learns about the pending divorce. Awkward. While reluctant of the changes this "big ball of fur" would bring, it's through the adult Henry's voice-over that we find out his parent's split would "allow all of us to finally discover... who we needed to be."
