    With [Mike O'Malley's] fluid scripts, these sharp actors hit not just three-pointers but also free throws.

    Although a TV series about the trappings of sudden fame could be cliché, Mr. O’Malley roots the show in specific, believable characters that make Survivor’s Remorse one of the fall’s stand-out new shows.

    The show initially relies too heavily on plots in which Cam’s career is imperiled by the family’s behavior, plots that come off as contrivances to give the family deeper roots in Cam’s world. But Remorse finds its sea legs once it realizes Cam’s family can afford to stand on its own, whether they realize it or not.

    Survivor’s Remorse is mordant and very funny, but there is a redeeming sweetness beneath the satire and b-ball swagger.

    It's genuinely hilarious and smartly written (Mike O'Malley), its observations are keen, its atmosphere warm but with a saving flinty undertone. Add to that a preening vulgarity that shows touching evidence of restraint.

    Usher brings a sweetness to Cam that cuts through some of the cynicism around him. His character's far from perfect, but there are times when he seems a little too good to be true, or at least a little too good to be truly funny.

    Love it. It is refreshingly funny and real. The family members are brutally honest with each other take care of one another. One of theLove it. It is refreshingly funny and real. The family members are brutally honest with each other take care of one another. One of the reasons it really works is that Cam is a great guy - not a stereotypical jerk professional athlete. You become invested in these characters. I'm just bummed that there were only 6 episodes. Check it out. Expand
