Zach Braff as a Dad:
26 April 2018 | by DonnaTNSee all my reviews

I see this show as a little bit older, more mature Zach Braff trying to step into the old, well-worn shoes of "TV sitcom dad," especially since he is a dad of young kids in real life now at home.

John Dorian was a single guy. The character Alex is married & has 2 young kids. (New territory for Zach to play.). Give him a chance before unplugging it altogether!

If they keep the kids as an integral focal point of the scripts each week, (plus the mom, too, of course!) hopefully they will figure out where these characters are going. Sometimes it takes awhile to figure out new characters, & storylines, and the motivating desires of each character (without falling into stereo-typical characters.)

If sitcoms would actually put their characters IN FUNNY situations where the comedy comes from, (like Lucy & Ethel or Laverne & Shirley!!) that's when sitcoms turn into classic gold!

Sitcom has become a term today that usually means "nuclear family: mom, dad, and two or three kids."

That's not really fair to the genre. Remember "Cheers?" Remember "Taxi?"

GET THE WRITING BACK to SITUATIONS, (especially funny, absurd situations) & not just "joke, punchline, joke, punchline, kid rolls eyes, says something catty or mean to parents, & then storms out of the room stomping their feet."

It took Bonanza almost a year before they got into the groove of things. Give Alex Inc. more than a week or two.
