Little parents are family-friendly, but a little bit bland.

sarcastic and degrading wife...

This show is yet ANOTHER example of a poor husband wife relationship. The wife is rude and constantly degrading the husband who is trying his best- but still cowers to his wife and never appears to take his role as the leader of the home. In the 3 episodes I saw- the wife was unkind at least 42 times--and used kind words or words of affirmation towards her husband TWICE. Sad.

very demanding wife, shows little respect for her husband. very selfish person.perhaps she should take a seat back and reflect how she comes across, be thankful for efforts her husband makes to please her not tear down and left feeling miserable. first time watching not interested in someone going off like a crazy nut to return to the show. thank you for showing wives at home how not to treat your spouse whom you love, respect, and adore???.... feel very sorry for Charlie & Craig. Miserable people end up with what they attract----ALONE!!! Wake Up....your awful Becky.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1):

With so many other reality series on television, a new show has to have something really special to make it stand out. But it can't just rest on a gimmick or -- even worse -- on a constant state of conflict between characters; the subjects themselves have to pique our interest and make us care about what happens to them from week to week. And that's where Our Little Life misses the mark.

There's no denying Craig and Becky's size -- or the fact that Charlie will someday tower over them. But based on the first episode, at least, their lives are disappointingly average. Maybe that proves that they're just like everyone which case, there's nothing here you haven't seen before.
