I watched this and I really enjoyed it. I kind of wasn’t expecting to. I wanted to see it not because of the premise but because I like all the actors (Will Arnett, Christina Applegate, and Maya Rudolph) and it was created by Lorne Michaels.
It was really funny and not at all cutesy or sentimental, which is often a problem with baby sitcoms and/or family-oriented shows. I highly recommend!
“But the couple at the center of the show is completely believable. I believed them together instantly, believed they would fall in love and stay together, and believed they loved their baby but also missed their earlier life. There are some nice moments of recognition that they have some ambivalence about parenthood (the fact that the baby is brand new and they’re celebrating their seventh anniversary tells you they’ve waited longer than many couples do), and it’s one of the only sitcoms I can remember where the parents are incredibly frustrated about parenting but transparently adore their baby. The writing is sharp, the core performances are on target, and a lot of traps are avoided.”
