Mom, Dads, Back In the Game, The Millers, The Crazy Ones. What do these shows all have in common other than the fact that they’re all new sitcoms? They all feature grown adult and parent relationships. It’s like everyone in Hollywood decided at the same time that this will be the new theme of every sitcom on television.
Where am I now?
Dads: I was out after the first episode, but way, way in after the second. I’ve since grown tired of this show and have deleted it from my DVR.
Mom: I hated the first episode, or more specifically, hated the big pregnancy ending. But out of pure love for Anna Faris I watched episode 2. Nope, still hate this one.
Brooklyn Nine Nine: I called this the best sitcom this year and last. It still is. And my DVR problem of only being able to tape two things at a time (SHIELD & The Originals with Brooklyn Nine Nine being the odd show out) has been solved because I just signed up for Direct TV.
The Crazy Ones: I’m still watching it. I still hate myself for watching it. I will continue to watch it.
Super Fun Night: I’ve recorded every episode, but I haven’t watched a single second. I’m not excited about this one and because a dark horse entry has grown on me, I might just have to give this one the boot.
The Goldbergs: I wasn’t planning on watching this one, but gave it a chance anyway. I didn’t love it at first, but with each passing episode, it grows on me more and more. Sure, it’s The Wonder Years in the 80′s, but I don’t care.
