Storyline

Follows the life of a former hit TV series actor by the name of Dean Sanderson (Rob Lowe). Dean has returned to his hometown of Boise, Idaho, after years of portraying a lawyer on the fictitious television show THE GRINDER in Hollywood. His years of portraying a lawyer on television have somehow given him the idea he is actually qualified to work in and perhaps run his family's real-life law firm.

Great acting and good scripts
26 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed the pilot but thought I'd wait for a few episodes before reviewing. Often the pilot is the best episode you're going to see, so I don't like to jump in too soon. But this series just keep getting better and better. Strong acting from everyone, including relative newcomer Mary Elizabeth Ellis who plays the wife. I say "relative" because with such TV staples as William Devane, Rob Lowe, and Fred Savage it's hard to steal a scene, but Ellis does a great job. Let's hope they keep up the good work.

This latest episode had a guest appearance from Timothy Oliphant, one of my favorite actors ("Hitman", "Justified"). It was good fun and let's hope they have more guest appearances, perhaps from past cast members from "Parks and Recreation" or "The Wonder Years".
