Review by Suzanne 10/13/05
So far I've only watched one episode of the show; if I
watch another, I may amend my review.
The show is about Freddie, who is a successful
restaurant-owner. His sister, niece, mother, and widowed
sister-in-law life with him. He goes out a lot with his friend
(played by 90210's Brian Austin Green) to pick up women.
I had high hopes for this show because we really need some
good new comedies. I was pretty disappointed, though. From the
beginning, the show tried too hard (and the laugh track was definitely
annoying when it started laughing maniacally at jokes that were not funny
at all). The show was not really funny or even interesting, at all.
Then, later, when Freddie meets a woman from his old neighborhood, it got
better. Seeing how she and his family interacted was interesting,
and there were a few good jokes.
The cast did a fine job; it just needs better writing and
it needs to work on its own terms and take chances, not try so hard to
please the audience. If I could only watch one show in that time
slot, it wouldn't be this one.
