DADS: What You Need to Know About the New Fox Series

September 17, 2013 by  

There are approximately one million new shows debuting this season*, and it’s going to get difficult to keep track of them all.

To help you out, for every new show, I’m going to basically create a hub of info on the day of the premiere — pilot photos, my quick take on the pilot (or what I’ve seen so far), what’s been written about it so far, and when you can watch it.

Next up, DADS…

DADS

Picture 1 of 14

DADS: The new live-action, multi-camera comedy from Emmy Award winner Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, the team behind “Ted” and FAMILY GUY, stars Seth Green (top C) and Emmy Award nominee Giovanni Ribisi (top second from L) as two successful gaming entrepreneurs – and childhood best friends – whose lives get turned upside down when their pain-in-the-neck patriarchs, Martin Mull (bottom L) and Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Peter Riegert (bottom R) move in.

*Maybe not scientifically correct. But close enough.

Fox’s description: “Eli (Seth Green) and Warner (Giovanni Ribisi) are business partners – and childhood best friends – whose lives get turned upside down when their pain-in-the-neck dads, David (Peter Riegert) and Crawford (Martin Mull), move in with them.”

My take: I enjoy the people behind the show (and the actors who are on it), but I didn’t love the pilot. That being said, episode 2 made me laugh out loud several times, so I’ll be DVRing it in the hopes it’s like most comedy pilots and just needs a bit of time to find its footing.

DADS premieres tonight at 8 PM on Fox.
