    I actually felt bad for Leah Remini cuz this show was awful and it wasn't a role she needed to play. I watched the first episode and knew this show had no chance and here is why: Halfway through the episode I had to look at my TV guide and check to see if this was a comedy. That is how bad this show was. It just made no sense to me.

    Whatever made the original somewhat of a surprise success is clearly absent here, as Family Tools wastes its audience's time with stale, threadbare material that should've never seen the light of day.

    [The] clunky scenes work thanks to the exceptional cast. These actors can sell anything. Almost.

    The pilot half aims for the exaggerated, other-worldly tone of "Arrested Development" and misses.... The second episode, by contrast, has a healthy dose of the ordinary mixed in and is actually about something: the invisibility of the working class.
