Life in Pieces Falls Apart

  All human behavior is garbage, attempting to form familial bonds is like making a cotton-candy shelter during a hurricane, romance is dead, men are idiots, women are perpetually wounded, aging is a curse, youth is a curse, parenting is terrible, being parented is terrible, why am I alive, Life in Pieces is so depressing, let us all pray for darkness. CBS comedies, folks.   The single-camera comedy follows different members of the Short family: Dianne Wiest and James Brolin* as the grandparents; and Thomas Sadoski, Colin Hanks, and Betsy Brandt as the adult children. Sadoski spends the first episode on a first date, Hanks spends it in the immediate aftermath of the birth of his first child, Brandt spends it taking her oldest kid on a college visit, and Brolin spends it staging a mock-funeral for himself instead of a birthday party. Brolin's John reminds everyone in the excruciatingly on-the-nose closing that life is made up of moments, and we carry them with us as precious memories. Everyone looks on earnestly, even getting choked up as he explains what memories are. They're these things you can look back on, see.   Read More... //www.vulture.com/2015/09/life-in-pieces-falls-apart.html
