This show is funny and over-the-top, with Lowe commanding the screen while the chemistry between him & Savage is a workable dynamic you'd have to call naturally disjointed. Savage has a central character as lead/support & his naturally funny personality, although a bit overly anxious and immature, might be just the right foil for Lowe's naive-yet-ever-winning former TV star.

The supporting characters' parts feature good comedy writing and performances. Casting seems correct and parts are played excellently throughout. Funny, naive small town lawyers in the situation comedy helps the humor fly.

I really liked the pilot episode. The show's corny but I believe it supposed to be like that and it works!

I find it annoying and predictable. It's set in another world and that would be okay if they didn't pretend to be a normal(ish) family. I know Lowe is good looking but good grief, he's not *that* good looking or spellbinding. Once Upon a Time is deliberately set in another dimension, this isn't far behind, and it ain't intentional. Epic Fail.

Meh, pretty terrible and unfunny, but I gave it an extra half star on Rob Lowe alone.

A popular tv lawyer visits his real lawyer brother and father and decides to get into the business himself. The only problem is, is that he's an over-the-top actor with a crazy obvious god-complex and completely delusional. Rob Lowe can do no wrong in my books. This hilarious and ridiculous concept is brilliant! The under-his-breath comments from Savage is so on-point it doesn't even seem scripted. I did not expect this to be good, but I Love!

Concluded? I wonder why? This is one of those shows that you like to watch even though it's pretty lame.

Very funny series. I love Rob Lowe. He is not only gorgeous and a good person but he is the ultimate funny man. Fred Savage is hillarious as the straight man. Nice famiy series. It is irreverent and ridiculously funny.

I'm shocked by all the negative reviews. I actually like this show a lot. I think it's fun and funny. I love Rob Lowe and Fred Savage. I was a little nervous about their chemistry at first, because they're completely different types of comedians. But when I heard they were doing a show together, I had to at least try it. And I have come to the conclusion that I think their chemistry totally works. I love it! Maybe it won't last for more than a season or two, but I'm gonna stick it out.
