Storyline

Mort has a secret that he really wants to tell his three adult children, who are so self-absorbed they don't see that something has changed for divorced, girlfriendless dad. Even when he invites them to dinner en masse to share his news, somehow, the conversation becomes about them. The secret unfolds, though, when he comes home and sees his married daughter getting intimate with her ex. Now, he knows her secret; she learns his; and the dysfunctional family finds one secret after another being exposed. Written by Jwelch5742

Annoying family members are the storyline here
3 May 2016 | by HouTravelerSee all my reviews

Boy I really wanted to like this series. I watched all of Season 1, took a break, and then started watching season 2. I've decided to stop watching because I am so disappointed with the storyline and the characters. This show presents a unique opportunity to include story lines that are unique and important to the transgender community. However, they've chosen to focus on the family and extended family members instead of Jeffrey Tambor's transgender character. This probably would have been acceptable except the family members are so unlikeable! As portrayed they are all selfish, self-absorbed and whiny. It is uncomfortable and for me, unwatchable. I love Judith Light but her character as Jeffrey Tambor's wife is the stereotypical overbearing wisecracking Jewish mom. Jeffrey Tambor is outstanding and is well-deserving of the awards he is receiving. That's really the only redeeming quality of the show. Even the dreadful "I am Cait" deals with trans issues better than this series.
