Escaped from TV Land
29 September 2018 | by mickdansforthSee all my reviews

A few years ago TV Land had a bunch of TV shows featuring classic TV actors and written by classic TV writers. And this show feels like that, but on Network TV with better and more modern writers from the post Survivor/American Idol TV decimation event era.

(Reality TV was cheaper and got better ratings so half the slots went reality. With less scripted TV, good writers became more concentrated, and the level of writing on TV improved.)

David Alan Grier is funny, and is looking a bit like Tim Conway next to Vicki Lawrence, who is absolute dynamite. Martin Mull is doing the always entertaining Martin Mull thing and Leslie Jordan is also great.

Jamie Farr has a scene in the first episode. I hope he becomes a regular and/or they fill that slot with regular, much beloved guest stars from classic TV.

This is much better and more fun than "Retired At 35", "Hot In Cleveland" and the other TV Land fare.
