I’ve just realized ABC The Family is premiering this Thursday.
The trailer is intriguing and the cast is great (Joan Allen, Allison Pill, Zach Gilford..).
Watching the trailer I was thinking: the pilot could easily be a potential submission for Joan Allen, if nominated.
What do you think? Hit or miss?February 29, 2016 at 9:31 am #368048
I always assume that a network show will be bad and this one is from a Scandal writer.
Good cast though that also includes Rupert Graves (DI Lestrade in Sherlock), who brought along Sherlock pilot director Paul McGuigan.
Look for me in the ten-years-ago scenes!February 29, 2016 at 9:45 am #368049
When the trailers for all new shows came out last May, this one grabbed me immediately. In fact, it might’ve been my favorite trailer for all the new network shows. Great cast and the story looks very good. I’ve read some very favorable reviews, so I’m excited to see if this show really brings it.February 29, 2016 at 12:15 pm #368050
Would love to see the always-splendid Joan Allen with a hit on her hands, even if it’s on the small screen.February 29, 2016 at 12:44 pm #368051
The show looks fantastic and it’s getting B-range reviews for the most part, which isn’t bad! Will definitely be tuning in. Love me some Joan Allen and Allison Pill.
I also hear Andrew McCarthy is fantastic in this.February 29, 2016 at 1:12 pm #368052
Wish her the best. One of my favourite actresses.
Do not have enough time to commit to another network show, tho.February 29, 2016 at 4:24 pm #368053
I really hope this is something stellar for Joan Allen!March 1, 2016 at 7:19 am #368054
This looks like an exhausting show to watch. The kid isn’t really theirs. Constant discord. Everyone in the family has SECRETS! No thank you. But yay if Joan Allen has a hit on her hands. She certainly deserves the career resurgence.March 2, 2016 at 4:02 pm #368055
Damn down from a 72 to 56 on Metacritic. Could rise up to the mid 60s, but Im not sure
Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.March 3, 2016 at 7:32 am #368056
The premise sounds like Arrow minus the vigilante business. Meh.March 3, 2016 at 8:48 am #368057
Yeah, sounds like a one-season wonder for sure. Unfortunately.March 5, 2016 at 1:18 am #368059
The pilot was interesting. Is it a limmited series?
It looks like the kind of thing that needs an end.March 5, 2016 at 7:57 am #368060
Joan gave a good speech in the episode. The kind voters love.March 5, 2016 at 8:46 am #368061
I love Joan Allen and think she is criminally underrated, but the writing on this show is so bad and obvious. She deserves MUCH MUCH better than this. I’m not sure I can watch future episodes.
Someone give this lady something GOOD. Room was a wonderful start.March 7, 2016 at 8:14 am #368062
Starts with a horrid 0.8 in its timeslot premiere. It’ll be lucky to finish its order, as that’s worse than fall flop Blood & Oil.
I guess ABC could claim it’s a Miniseries like with Actress nominee Missing, but it could fail even then.
