I am totally hooked on this series!
on January 5, 2011
I got this DVD set even though I had never seen the show before.
I love the guy from Six Feet under, and the girl from Gilmour Girls and thought I would give it a try. I am absolutely thrilled that I took the chance! This is SUCH a great show! I am totally hooked!
The story line is about a family of 4 grown children, and it weaves in and out of each of their lives telling the stories of them and their kids and their slightly hippy parents. This is the family that we all wish we had growing up, yet it is not sugary sweet...the stories are real and the characters are facing problems that many young familes face every day.
One of the main plot lines is that one of the children is diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome (a high functioning form of Autism), the family struggles through the diagnosis and we are brought along as they deal with the life changing decisions and daily routines that shape their lives.
One of the sisters is dealing with a broken marriage to a drug addict, and she and her two teenage children move back home to the parents house, and all that goes along with starting over is explored with her....
I won't give it all away...but you will find yourself saying "I am just going to watch one more....and then I will go to bed..." It is totally addictive so set some time aside if you start to watch it!
This set comes HIGHLY recommended!! I just hope the show finds it's audience and is able to stay on the air! Let's get the word out about this hidden gem before it is too late!!
