Promising idea, but pilot felt formulaic and sitcomy
on September 20, 2012
The idea behind this new network TV sitcom, "Guys with Kids" is a promising one, feature stay at home dads raising small kids. The pilot episode introduces us to the three main male characters and their families. Two of them are married, the third has joint custody with a "difficult" ex-wife. A total of seven kids between the three families. Kareem Abdul Jabbar guest-stars in the pilot. It takes place in New York City.
Pretty much everything in the pilot was typical sitcom fare. Most of the jokes were not particularly funny or not funny at all.
Having said that, this is only episode #1, so there is always room for improvements. A lot of TV shows that ended being great started slowly with mediocre episodes and vice versa.
