The role reversing thing is not really new (still refreshing to see), but it does work. The older cast is been given great characters to play with. We may not have big Hollywood moments in this and it might feel awkward at places, but it works in its favor rather than against it. The generation clash is something to cherish. Obviously not everyone of the age group is like the ones depicted here, but for story purposes and for our "heroes" to find themselves its important.
There are story strands that are left a bit on the side (some completely stranded), but that's OK. Not everything needs a payoff. That might not be to everyones liking, but the overall story does work like that. Good acting in a good story. Not laugh out loud, more a drama, but still has more than a few funny moments (that feel real)
