    You can certainly identify when its trying to be funny but its just not. It has typical sitcom situations but they just don't pull the jokes off. Everything happens is pretty much how you would expect it to.

    A show about two families thrown together because of something their kids did. Everyone gets along except the dads. So basically the show is about the ongoing tension between the dads and how every one else gets along.

    Take away any of the possibilities for comedy, and you have a good synopsis of this show.

    There are a few chuckleworthy lines, but overall the show is aiming straight down the middle, and that's exactly where it ends up. [25 Oct/1 Nov 2013, p.94]

    Welcome to the Family has no edge at all, not even a pretend edge.
