Liberals always ruin a good show

It's sad that liberals and SJWs always have to ruin a good show... It started out great! season 1 lures you in and you think that it's similar to "last man standing", with Tim allen only to find out in season 2 they shove all the liberal leftist BS propaganda and ideology down the viewers throats... They constantly propagandize good shows and media. It's spreading to every corner of culture now and it's sad and pathetic. If you're looking for a show that's like a substitute or similar to last man standing well keep searching cause this show IS NOT IT.

It's a "lie". But try it :-)

This show is not what review on Netflix said it was. This man is supposed to be a stay at home dad for this TV series. The first couple episodes are about a stay at home dad, but then the topic completely changes to almost a different show. It is not even about what you think it review is. Over all it is pretty funny. The role models are not nice or something you want your kids to watch. The humor is smart, but rude. There is a lot of swearing and sex. Adam (the dad) and Andi (his wife) are very sexy. Their is not any removing of clothes, although Adam is viable sometimes is is underwear, and shirt off. You never see skin to skin between Adam and Andi. This show is not appropriate for kids under 13 or 14

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6):
Kids say (11):

This lighthearted, sometimes stereotypical series highlights the fact that families are changing. It uses humor to underscore the different challenges families face and how they adapt together. Man with a Plan has its share of silly moments, but the series presents fathers in a positive light and emphasizes that both parents have to work hard to keep the family happy, healthy, and safe while trying to find balance for themselves.
