Moderately funny but surprisingly conventional for a Tina Fey production
9 July 2017 | by cheroldSee all my reviews

When I heard there was a new comedy from Tina Fey I had to check it out. But when i watched it, I thought, is this conventional sitcom about an interfering mother and her reporter daughter really by the woman who created 30 Rock and Kimmie Schmidt?? The answer is no. Fey is the producer but not the creator, and there is little of the insane, bordering-on-surreal touches that distinguish her own creations.

Still, the series is reasonably funny. There are moments when it's quite funny. Andrea Martin does a solid job as the mother and things move pretty quickly.

But after two episodes, I just don't see why I would bother watching this when there are series like Kimmie Schmidt and Speechless I could watch instead.
