A retired police officer is on a fresh career path as he rises to the challenge of being a newly single dad. His kids are grateful to him for making sure they're okay, but decide it's time for him to get out of the house, so they turn to Vanessa (Leah Remini), his former police partner, for help.
We were surprised that this show is created by a woman because all of the female characters are so shallow and stereotypical and ignorant. The storyline, the text, and the vocabulary are demeaning not just to women but to humanity in general. Baffling.
We are huge fans of Patrick Warburton. He's the reason we watched these first three episodes. He had several hilarious one-liners. His is the only character that has any decency or depth at all. The others are bor-ring and annoying and we're just not willing to spend our time watching boring and annoying. Like the actors, just not the characters.
Hopefully the show will get better. It has a good premise. Hopefully they'll move past using foul language and bleeps (both are witless) as well as foul imagery and references ("crappin' on therapy"? Really?). Hopefully all of the characters will actually show some character, backbone, and intelligence. Hopefully there will be topics other than sex, looks, and drugs.
Not sure whether we'll tune in again or not.
