Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This lighthearted show highlights the difficult process of coming to terms with a divorce and trying to restart a new life after. The story centers around Rel's efforts to cope, but a big part of the story is the important role his extended family plays in this process. Lil Rel Howery fans will enjoy his signature brand of comedy, which occasionally includes playing multiple characters in a single show. But despite the cast of comedians that joins him, the punchlines lack sufficient energy to be very funny. Nonetheless, Rel has some positive messages that viewers might appreciate.
