User Reviews

A modern and believable family drama.
5 July 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The Fosters is a great show. The idea behind the show is well executed and feels very modern and believable. As the world becomes more tolerant and accepting, the definition of "family" has changed substantially. It's nice to see a diverse cast of characters that blend in nicely together.

Although I do really enjoy watching this show, I question how many seasons it can run for. There has been so much drama in the first season that it could turn completely unbelievable if they try to maintain that level. Luckily that hasn't happened yet.

If your looking for a family drama that will keep you coming back for more and also invest in the characters then this is perfect for you. Their lives are super crazy and filled with lots of baggage. A perfect escape from reality.
