      Previous Audience Member I LOVE THIS SHOW!!! I hadn't heard of it, but stumbling upon it was such a blessing! The casting is fantastic, even down to the kids. I love how most of the main characters have almost nothing in common to start, but they build these really beautiful, complex, and often hilarious relationships with one another as they bond over single parenthood. When I got to the finale of season 2 & then found out the show had been cancelled I was DEVASTATED!!! BRING IT BACK! BRING IT BACK! BRING IT BACK! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I love this show! I think the premise is great. Hits all the spots! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I really hope ABC chooses to pick this show up for the third season! The whole will-they-wont-they with Will and Angie has too much to offer! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Next Post a review
