so contrived
17 September 2014 | by myopnionisSee all my reviews

I was excited to see a good cast and looking forward to seeing this show. Huge disappointment - Even if you can ignore all the noise - which is hard to do (constant kid screaming) and sound editing that is way too loud in chase scenes, etc. Messing was great in Will & Grace but it has become clear over the years and especially in this show that she needs to stick to comedic acting. Her dramatic acting is so contrived and with writing that is incredibly contrived, it only makes things worse. Her partner isn't a very good actor either - the only person even remotely believable in the cast is Enrico Colantoni. It takes some bad writing and directing to take actors that are previously loved and make you not at all interested in them. It is predictable, over-acted, contrived, relying on typical tools like regurgitating old shows characters and stories, loud chase scenes, noise to show chaos, rather than allowing the acting to portray chaos, etc. Overall, just nothing worth watching. Sad too, because I was excited about it.
