Me Myself and I cast 

Review of "Me, Myself and I" 9/28/17 by Eva Diaz
airs Mondays 9:30/8:30 on CBS.

I wasn't that interested in watching this show because the premise seemed too confusiing to me. However, since I liked several of the actors on the show, I decided to watch it. I was right with my first impression. It is too confusing to be heartwarming and funny, and the show doesn't do that good of a job explaining its premise in the first episode. The show is about Alex Riley, an inventor and businesman during three different times in his life: When he is 14 in 1991 (played wonderfully by Jack Dylan Grazer); in present day by Bobby Monihan; and at age 65 in the year 2024, played by veteran actor John Laroquette. I had to look at the show's summary on the CBS website to get that information because the first episode didn't make that clear at all.

I think the show has the potential to be heartwarming and funny, but it has several problems. In my opinion, Bobby Monihan is the weak link here. I don't know if he is just nervousm but he seems stiff to me in his delivery of jokes. Also, the jokes are too obvious. I could see them coming, and they didn't make me laugh at all. There are two good things about the show: it has great music and a pretty decent story. Each episode has a heartwarming moment at the end, but the cast is too big, and they need to make it more clear what year they are in, so that the audience doesn't get confused. The show needs to take advantage of its proven comedic stars like Laroquette and Jaleel White (who plays Alex's friend Daryl, when he's forty years old). He's best known as Steve Urkel from "Family Matters", but he does a great job on this show playing a very different character.

I will keep watching to see if the show fixes these problems, but I won't be worried if I miss an episode or two of it. I give this show 3 stars out of 5.

As a 14-year-old boy living in Chicago in 1991, Alex Riley was on top of the world, inventing cool things and celebrating the Bulls’ first championship, until his mom, Maggie, moved them to Los Angeles, the heart of Lakers country, and married a pilot, Ron. With his new stepbrother, Justin, Alex needed to reinvent himself in a new school, where he meets his dream girl, Nori Sterling. In 2017 40-year-old Alex is an inventor/entrepreneur on top of the world until his wife leaves him and threatens to take their daughter, Abby, with her, sending him into a tailspin that requires the help of his best friend and business partner, Darryl, to get him back on track. In 2042 at 65, Alex is a highly successful businessman who, after suffering a minor heart attack, decides he’s ready to reinvent himself once again. Alex announces he’s retiring to his adult daughter, Abby, now the general manager of the Chicago Bulls, and he gets a surprise chance to reconnect with his childhood crush, Nori, who now goes by Eleanor. During these three pivotal periods, Alex always manages to find a way to move forward, handling key moments with determination, emotion and humor.
