The writing is awful.
The actors? They're what keep bringing me back. As cringy as the writing was in the scene with Robin and Sam, the chemistry and just the ability of the actors made it so much better.
I was sort of thrown during the Luly and Evan scene - do we need soft core in the first hour of primetime? Please, can we not have anymore shower scenes with Luly and Evan? Honestly, as much as I like the actors, their storyline does nothing for me. And Sharon Leal is so good, and capable of so much more than she's had in this role, I've been disappointed with what she's been given.
Give me more Larry, give me more Anthony, give me the other kids, give me Oliver & Peter (THANK GOD they didn't do the bait and switch storyline with the adoption story! I adore them!), give me ROBIN AND SAM (I really like David Walton, you guys). And more Margot!
As far as the big 'reveal' to Luly - I know it would be staggering to find out that your dad was not your biological dad. I did think that maybe it was a bit...disjointed? The family adopted Charlotte and clearly she's blended well. Family is what you make, and many families are 'made', not biological!
I'm glad they didn't drag out the whole 'will Luly ever forgive Anthony' story.
