Lightweight fun family viewing

The relationship of the main characters (played by Craig Robinson and Adam Scott) has similar elements of humour and odd-couple mismatch to that between Robinson and Andy Samberg in Brooklyn Nine Nine, but this is a more child friendly show. Very occasional mild bad language, and adult references as noted in the main review, but generally the show relies on the comedy between Robinson and Scott to carry it along. The plots are generally a standalone "monster of the week" type with not much depth and there are some scenes that will be scary for younger children but there's not much in the way of gore and even the scary scenes are usually lightened by humorous exchanges or situations. A good watch for families with older children.

Brain dead

Characters are one dimensional and plot is severely lacking. Has a long way to go and 5 more writers are needed before this could be good. Depressing that Fox believes Americans are this stupid. I would question the intelligence of anyone who found this capable of watching, no matter what age. Female characters are only inserted for a low cut blouse.
