Good tight script, the pilot went fine. but still can't see the intention of NBC for the show. As a transitioning one or what! after all, week 1 rates will give us a clue ;)
The series got a huge potentials ,, the idea of the show isn't that genuine but the plot is tight and entangled properly and the script looked okay , had a couple of laughs and some giggles ... Owen Ellickson and Jonah Platt are a couple of young writers yet they had their share of writing some episodes on TV like The office and Family guy .. and i think with a full-on new show they will do just fine.
As for the cast; Craig Robinson is a fine good funny actor but here i felt he faded away a bit in the comedy and added a touch of the romantic honest man ,,. to be more fair, the performance of Tim Bagley, Brandon T. Jackson and the kids Ethan Josh Lee and Dante Brown were much more funnier and engaging in the comedy script.
So overall, NBC made a good first choice on airing the show .. but they really need to be careful , because this is no where near the best sitcoms on the network and i don't know if they have chosen it just as a summer preparation gap for the Sep/Oct Hit shows but if they want it to survive i think they need to step-up their game and their script to have more and more comedy bits.
