A pilot that was better than it sounded on paper (though I'm not sure there isn't more funny chemistry between Marcia Gay Harden--who plays Wife No. 1--and Akerman than there is between Whitford and Akerman).
Easily the funniest new comedy on TV this season, which explains how bummed I was when ABC opted not to renew it. Malin Akerman is such an adorable actress and the whole cast just works really well. I think the show works so well for me because it kind of resonates with Modern Family and the senior show has not been as funny as it used to be in earlier seasons. I hope ABC or other networks or if necessary Netflix/Hulu come to their senses and revive this stunning work!
The asian kid is a little racist and weird, but it's funny, and I like that. I think it could end up becoming a nice family show. The "trophy wife" really cares, and that's something that I think the kids and his ex-wives are gonna realize soon.
Trophy Wife truly deserves a trophy. People compare this show with Modern Family a lot, but I think this show has a better and stronger start than Modern Family. It shows a whole new concept of what families can be in this modern day and the jokes are not that bad. Classic humor with a modern twist.
Not particularly impressed so far. The show is slowly getting better with each passing episode, but I can't help but feel like there are better shows out there to watch. It's got some decent jokes and the younger actors are nice, but the a lot of the adult characters are just cliches that have been done to death in other sitcoms. Overall there are a lot of worse shows out there right now, but there are also of better shows out there right now. "Trophy Wife" is watchable, but not great.
The show is ok; but it is not one of the shows that I have to watch every week and schedule time to watch, but is one I will watch if I am not busy and there is nothing else on. The acting is pretty good, especially the children's acting. However, there just is not a lot of interesting things going on in the plot; and while it does contain comedy, there is not enough to hold your attention for half an hour The kids have most of the funny lines of the show, so maybe if there are more scenes with Kate and the kids the show will be better; but the show is not bad for a half hour comedy that airs after all the main shows on network tv.
