    It's watchable only because of Michael J. Fox. He's great and has enough charm to make the show cute-ish, but the rest of the cast is seriously lacking. They give far too much air time to the rest of the family, especially the kids, and they simply aren't funny. The writing isn't great, either. I'm going to give it a few more episodes and hope that it finds its footing, but I don't haveIt's watchable only because of Michael J. Fox.

    It's shot single-camera, mockumentary style like "Modern Family," but the set-ups aren't as outrageous and the writing, while funny, is not quite as sharp.

    The ingredients are there; they just need more seasoning.

    Though the choice to have the characters speak to the camera feels a little tired (and the plotting to have it continue past the premiere is quite contrived), the show is quite possibly one of the funniest new comedies of the season, full of small moments that lead to big laughs.
