Review

It’s probably a good sign if it’s hard to say who the lead character in a sitcom is. This cheering American effort theoretically has its bill topped by Minnie Driver as a mother of three kids, including JJ who has cerebral palsy – this week, Driver’s hilarious as the organiser of a drunken mums’ night, but the main plots concern JJ (Micah Fowler) bonding with a glamorous gymnast who’s temporarily in a wheelchair, and Ray (Mason Cook) struggling to hide his virginal dweebiness from the dudes at school. In a show that easily mixes modern attitudes into an old format, Cook is terrific as a 21st-century version of a timeless character, the nervous nerd.

Summary

JJ gets a crush on a new girl at school, Ray gains hero status with the boys by making inaccurate claims about a photo on his mobile and Jimmy teaches Dylan how to deal with stress.
