Craig T. Nelson plays Zeke, the patriarch of the Braverman clan, who is married to sweet and gentle Camille (Bonnie Bedelia). The couple have four adult children - Adam (Peter Krause, one of my favorite actors in this show), Sarah (Lauren Graham), Erika Christensen (Julia), and Crosby (Dax Shepard). Adam is a senior executive at a shoe manufacturing company and is married to housewife Kristina (Monica Potter) and they have a teenage daughter and a young son. Sarah is the 'problem child' who married young, moved away, and then gets divorced and moves back into her parents' home with her two teenage children, Amber (Mae Whitman) and Drew. Sarah has her own set of problems - can't seem to find a job that really brings out her potential, isn't sure what exactly she's meant to do, and her teenage daughter Amber is quite a handful in this first season. Then there's high achiever Julia, who is a hot-shot attorney, married to a building contractor turned stay-at-home dad, Joel Graham (Sam Yaeger), and they have a precocious young daughter. Finally, the youngest in the family is carefree, wild child Crosby who matures through the series, from an irresponsible, anything goes guy to a caring, responsible father and hardworking entrepreneur.Read more ›
This is the type of series designed for the whole family to watch together. It's a very realistic portrayal of a California family, along with all of the ups and downs of everyday life. It's very easy to relate to the situations that the characters find themselves in and it's emotional yet funny at the same time. If you're a member of Amazon Prime, the first 4 seasons are included with your membership.
I couldn't rate a TV series any higher than this. It's top-notch entertainment all the way.
I'm also ticked at how Sarah became so stupid as to even consider making a baby with this guy she's only been dating for a few months. (Their relationship is boring and lacks chemistry.) Sarah isn't even thinking about marriage, just a baby. And to top it off she's contemplating picking up and moving to NY with this guy when her son graduates HS... like she's just going to up and leave him on his own at that point. She doesn't even know if he'll be going to college (and she certainly can't even afford to send him to community college). And she wouldn't ask her dad to take care of them while she flits away with this new guy... She's always been a mom whose kids were everything to her but in this season her son is seriously upset at the idea that his mom is even thinking about having another baby - another "family" etc. and it doesn't really seem to "register" with her. It's like she's taking the attitude of "oh well, he's just a sensitive kid - but he's almost through HS so I don't need to care about him at this point, just me - which is not at all who her character is.
I don't know, it's like the writers took a big hit on the head and forgot who their characters are. (Fortunately, the writers come to their senses in the final episode of the season - but getting there was rough, and there's still the thing with them talking over each other going forward...hopefully that tones down some).
Still an interesting show with great acting (for the most part) but this season wasn't as good as the first two.
