Life in Pieces cast

"Life in Pieces" review by Eva Diaz  9/24/15
Airs Mondays 8:30/7:30c on CBS

I was excited to watch this show because of the great cast, which includes James Brolin (John) and Dianne Wiest (as his wife, Joan). These two actors steal the show as their characters are the funniest of the great cast (which also includes Colin Hanks as one of  their sons).  The characters' four stories are told separately, and then they come together in the end.  That last part seemed kind of forced to me because John gives a speech tying together all the stories. This will get boring if they do it every week.  The cast is great, but the show should be an hour  instead of a half hour. This would avoid the confusion and the unfinished feeling.

Also, I think if the show was expanded to an hour, it would be a worthy replacement for fans of the canceled show "Parenthood.".  I think the show's writes are wasting the talents of its wonderful cast.  I hope that it improves.  Because of that, I am giving the show 3 out of 5 stars . You can watch "Life in Pieces" Mondays at 8:30 PM Eastern time 7:30 Central time on CBS.  The show will move to Thursdays after the end of football season.
