Review

Minnie Driver leads a faultless ensemble in a cracking US sitcom that doesn’t sacrifice any of its edge to please a family audience. Driver plays Maya, a mum of three who fiercely advocates for one of her children in particular: JJ (Micah Fowler) has cerebral palsy, and the whole clan is about to move house yet again in the hope that a new school will treat JJ better than all his previous ones.

Driver’s terrific as an unconventional battler who’s a nightmare for authority figures, while Fowler – who has cerebral palsy – wields scene-stealing comic timing. But in a show that cheerfully refuses to be preachy or “inspirational”, the whole cast nails the vibe of a gang held strongly together by love and weary sarcasm.

Summary

Maya DiMeo has moved her family to a new home and school as she has finally found a class with a full-time aide who can serve as eldest son JJ's voice, as the teenager has cerebral palsy and uses a communication board to converse. Pilot episode of the American comedy, starring Minnie Driver, John Ross Bowie and Micah Fowler.
