It's a cross between Brothers and Sisters and Modern Family. Give it a go!

Ooh! Going to do that right this second while I work on a cake! flowers

i tried watching this last week cos it had great reviews but it wasnt my cup of tea didnt get the humour at all
each to their own i suppose

BendydickCuminsnatch Tue 16-Aug-16 18:23:14

Mm i did like it. I thought the comedy was a bit forced in places unlike Modern Family, but yeah I'll watch more I think! Got a few episodes in. I like the format of it smile

Yes i think we need to give it a go. Im bored of modern family now. The other one i like is Casual. Again its only for certain tastes. If you liked Transparent. Infact what can we call this genre? Whiney comedy/drama in the same ilk as Girls.

Watched first two episodes, I liked it! Very funny!

I liked Transparent. I haven't seen Brothers & Sisters, I'll try and find it! Watched more of Life in Pieces last night, I got up to the Christmas one, maybe further, don't remember. I'm like it more and more, love the new mum character!

We binge watched and really enjoyed it. Can't wait for the next season. I think it's out Oct.

I liked Casusl as well although it's more serious. Done good actors in it.

EachandEveryone Fri 19-Aug-16 19:56:24

Casual stupid phone. It has the mom from Six Feet Under in it. About a single mom her teenage daughter and screwball brother. It's quite mucky.

BendydickCuminsnatch Fri 19-Aug-16 20:41:56

Ooh going to try Casual now! Is it on Amazon? The perks of making cakes for a living are endless - watching series after series while you work grin

EachandEveryone Fri 19-Aug-16 20:44:54

Yes my friend is an artist and does the same thing

I've just watched all of Series 1 in the last 3 days.

It's great. I even like "Lark" as a potential baby name, but I know my whole family would be like : hmm

Thanks for the recommendation - love it!

totoromama Thu 25-Aug-16 18:32:32

Watched casual now on series 2

EachandEveryone Thu 25-Aug-16 20:04:49

I really like it. It's nice to see Pete Campbell again.

EverySongbirdSays Thu 25-Aug-16 20:08:16

Pete Campbell isn't in Life In Pieces.

I'm confused

Do you mean Pete Campbell from Mad Men?

Is he in Casual?

EachandEveryone Thu 25-Aug-16 21:42:34

Yes hes in Casual. Sorry i was getting carried away.

EachandEveryone Fri 02-Sep-16 14:16:19

Anyone watched Casual yet?

SlinkyVagabond Fri 02-Sep-16 14:23:06

Oh I loved it! (LIP) love Dianne Wiest and James Brolin (I'm old enough to remember him being a heart throb) and Colin Hanks is great. I'm rationing myself now though. I liked Frankie and....ugh gone blank. With Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. Rich American people comedy.
