Not bad - not good
22 January 2018 | by lixeixSee all my reviews

Overall not bad. Good pilot.

What I disliked was that the story feels a bit cliché and has a weird mix of comedy/drama ; your sort of loose focus.

Though it has good acting & twist, don't really feel like coming back.

Being set in the Chicago's Southside, I wondered if it would get a Shameless-vibe. It has not and that maybe what's missing.
