old fashion family sitcom
6 February 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Arthur (Jack McGee) and Marjorie McCarthy (Laurie Metcalf) are the heads of a Boston Irish Catholic close-knit combative family. He coaches high school basketball. Gerard (Joey McIntyre) and Sean (Jimmy Dunn) are their twin sons ... fraternal twins. Their daughter Jackie (Kelen Coleman) gets pregnant from the old assistant coach who just passed away. Ronny (Tyler Ritter) is their gay son and the only one who doesn't get sports.

This is an old fashion family sitcom with a gay character. It's old in both good and bad ways. There are no risks in this show. There is no attempt at anything out of the box. This has been done for over 20 years. It might have been edgy back in the day to have a nice normal gay character. Television has moved on beyond that. The good is that it is safe. It's easy. The cast is terrific. I like everybody in the show. They all have an easy chemistry. It's a fair sitcom but is going to be forgotten soon after its cancellation.
