Crazy Credits

The show opens with the printed tag line, "One Big Family. Four Short Stories.". This is a pun. Each episode consists of four complete stories, presented one at a time. But also, the name of the family is "Short". So the four segments that make up each episode aren't just short stories. They're Short stories. See more »

So far so funny
23 September 2015 | by cheroldSee all my reviews

I've only seen the first episode so far, but it was very funny. The setup is a little strange, so there are all these different stories and you don't know how they connect until the end, but that will probably make more sense now that they've established the premise.

The show has just a little edge to it, most notably in the giving-birth chapter, which portrayed the physical trauma of the experience. It really looks pretty grim, and I'm going to assume that's reasonably true to life because who would make that up. So I give them points there for pushing things a bit.

The cast is very solid, the writing is sharp, and if the series is as good as its pilot then I'm sold.
