Worth Watching? "Life in Pieces'

The new CBS comedy, Life in Pieces, is such a sad disaster. Clearly trying to come up with their own version of Modern Family, Life in Pieces falls short on many levels, which is very sad given that it features an excellent cast but also weak and tasteless writing. When watching the pilot you can’t help to think to yourself how much better this show could have been.

The show partially gets its name from that fact that each half hour episode is divided up into four short stories about one large family. The cast includes:

  • Patriarch and matriarch of the family: John (James Brolin) and Joan (Dianne Wiest)
  • Oldest sister and her family: Heather (Betsy Brandt) and husband Tim (Dan Bakkedahl) and their three children: Tyler (Niall Cunningham), Samantah (Holly J. Barrett) and Sophia (Giselle Eisenberg).
  • Middle brother and his girlfriend: Matt (Thomas Sadoski) and Colleen (Angelique Cabral)
  • Youngest Brother and his wife: Greg (Colin Hanks) and Jen (Zoe Lister-Jones)
