Mother Up! is an animated comedy series chronicling the misguided attempts at parenthood of Rudi Wilson (Longoria), a disgraced former music exec, as she transitions from the towers of Manhattan to the carpool lane of suburbia.
The adventures of small town folk. Catch up with Brent and the Dog River gang. Canada's #1 comedy brand is now bigger, bolder, and breaking the laws of physics. Small-town Saskatchewan has never been so - animated.
This show is like pasta. On its own kind of bland but it doesn't leave any bad tastes in your mouth. I like the premise even if the Canadian Jingoism annoys me. (I'm not an American but that doesn't mean I am OK with wanton America bashing).
It's funny how a Canadian show needs to have American characters to be interesting. The whole thing is kind of formulaic, the characters are very familiar (the son is basically Lisa Simpson and the older daughter is just another vapid hot girl and the mother is another long suffering housewife). I liked the younger daughter but she is basically a female Stewie Griffin with an Italian American flavor.
There is a ...filthiness...surrounding the show. A feeling of people in quiet desperation that is hard to laugh at.
The stories weren't amazing but they were watchable for a week day but eventually I just found better stuff to watch.
The best part of the show was always at the beginning where they show you a flash back to the process of how they went into witness protection. This little non-linear saga in bite size pieces is actually cool.
I wouldn't explicitly recommend it but it doesn't suck.
