Wow! True to the Hype!
3 October 2015 | by Jazzie-tooSee all my reviews

For once! All of Rob Lowe's energetic support of this new show was more than backed up in the pilot. This was fun and fulfilling. I loved all the characters, especially Lowe, Savage, and Devane! Excellent storyline to start the series. The story and pace kept moving right along. The humor had perfect timing. Rob Lowe is like a "fine wine", he ages quite well! I liked him in "West Wing" but this is going to be fun. And it has a lot of heart. And Fred Savage was a real surprise for me. I like his brother role. When a show that moves along like this, cute, humorous moments, connectivity, and then you can feel a few tears well up in the end! Well, that really suits me! Thank you SO MUCH!!
