A change of plans this man has a new life.
4 November 2016 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

Just started watching this new "CBS" sitcom called "Man with a Plan" and so far it's funny and it explores the ins and outs of married life with kids as the woman and man each take on different roles. Starring one of my favorite actors Matt LeBlanc(from "Friends" and "Episodes" fame)as Adam Burns a man's who's decided to stay at home and raise his kids even though he's got his own contractor supply business on the side, and it's the Mrs. Burns(Liza Snyder)who has went back to work in the medical field. And yes as expected this brings some growing pains in the form of dealing with the kids and then both Adam and Andi have their own marriage problems. It's a typical sitcom with good one liners and funny stories as it mixes today's culture with family life, so take my advice and give "Man with a Plan" a watch.
