Life in Pieces Reviews & Ratings

30 minutes

LIFE IN PIECES is a single-camera comedy about one big happy family and their sometimes awkward, often hilarious and ultimately beautiful milestone moments as told by its various members. Of the three siblings, middle child Matt (Thomas Sadoski) may have just found his true love, his co-worker, Colleen (Angelique Cabral); his coddled youngest brother, Greg (Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominee Colin Hanks), and his wife, Jen (Zoe Lister Jones), are overwhelmed by the birth of their first child; and the eldest, Heather (Betsy Brandt), and her husband, Tim (Dan Bakkedahl), are dreading their impending empty nest so much, they’re considering having another baby.

Life in Pieces is a great light hearted family comedy (like Modern Family/Parenthood) done in a series of shorts for each family's perspective that has moments of pee-your-pants funny! There are scenes in here that will never leave me because they were that hilarious!

I think they were trying to combine Parenthood and Modern Family. I was not impressed with the first episode but will give it a shot.

Excellent, clearly trying to be Modern Family but much whiter and more heterosexual or Parenthood but less serious. I would have liked a bit more diversity in the cast (you know, only one black character & he's the crazy ex-fiance) but it's a good, laugh-along without thinking comedy.

Life in Pieces is flavorless, not worth the time

Life in Pieces
1.02 “Interruptus Prison Breast Movin’” / 1.03 “Sleepy Email Brunch Tree”
Grade: C+ / C

I was optimistic about Life in Pieces when I reviewed the pilot, but my faith in the sitcom was short-lived. It seems the writers used all their best jokes in that first episode, because the next two were irredeemably bland. I tried to like Life in Pieces, but the characters are no more likeable or developed now than they were in the pilot (and in many cases, they’re worse). Even Betsy Brandt can’t save this vanilla cheesecake of a show. As someone without kids or a large family, I already find it difficult to relate to families on TV. But the show could at least be funny. Sadly, Pieces offers such derivative gags as walking in on your parents hooking up, breast-feeding hippies, sleep-deprived new parents, a house full of kids who all want things at the same time, and a bunch of sweaty shirtless men trying to cut down a tree. My strongest reaction to the show is “I’m never having kids.” At this point, almost every one of the characters is annoying to me and I don’t care about their dumb unfunny lives. I only gave “Interruptus” a pity-C+ for a tequila joke that was only half-funny. “Sleepy” improves on the vignette format, which I do like; the idea of self-contained acts has potential to move the story forward in less convoluted sitcommy ways, but the bits are just not that interesting. Pieces is not offensive, but it’s cliché as hell. I quit. I’m following two dozen shows; I don’t have time for this. There are even better shows to put on while folding laundry.

Seems to be Modern Family meets Parenthood, without the good story lines. I'm desperate for a good sitcom, and this just isn't it. BUT, it's not terrible. If you're looking for something to kill time, this isn't a bad choice. Just don't expect anything mind blowing

It kinda has a modern-family vibe, however, they have made the family more disfunctional. I think they were trying to make the show funny but it reaaly just came of as desperate to me. Not for me.
