Love it!

This show has depth, the writing is smart and it moves at a snappy pace. The umbrella message of the show is that it is not what happens to us that defines us, but how we deal with life's challenges. It takes on fallible people trying to do their best and we get to see their relationships mature through three different eras in time. There are two strong father figures in the show, a dedicated and loving father with a daughter and a respectful and caring Step-Dad with two boys, both serving up excellent messages with humor. The aforementioned daughter grows up to be the manager of The Chicago Bulls. So, lots of positive messages, humor and real life challenges met with humor and grace.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (4):

This show has an interesting premise, and it creates a unique format for character development since viewers get to know three distinct versions of Alex. As the story progresses, you're able to make connections between his younger selves and the seasoned citizen he eventually becomes, drawing parallels between different events in his life in ways more traditional reflective moments don't allow. Of the three, Moynihan's Alex is by far the best, sandwiched in between the innocence of youth and the clarity of age.

Where the series struggles a bit is in the transitions from one time period to the next. They happen briskly and without lead-in, and it takes a moment or two for viewers to get their bearings in a new time and place each time. It can be distracting, and it interferes with the story's flow, but it's not a deal-breaker. On the whole, Me, Myself & I boasts thoughtful humor and insight that just might make you reflect differently on the notable moments of your own life.
