Inept writer

This drama was unbelievable bland. The worst set up with the worst match up of cast. Dead on arrival. Not a single working dynamic. Not a single plot-line ended up gracefully. Not a single couple were a good pair up nor were they appealing. The writing was a catastrophic miss up. Inept writer even for the lowest of standards. A failure through and through.

Average to a Fault

So far gotten to episode 52, these are my thoughts so far

Right of the bat, this drama is in many respects watchable but also forgettable. While the story has an admirable message, it suffers from being just competent. There is nothing that has been done exceptionally well, and nothing that is exceptionally bad; aside from a few of the plot lines being nigh unwatchable.

The show suffers from a lack of creativity; it won't stand out, and will be forgotten quite fast. The plot is too predictable, the setting uninteresting and the character arcs. The plot twists are easy to see, and the conflicts quite obvious. It feels a bit rushed in writing, there is a good message in this story but it's like they didn't have time to edit the script to throw in a few surprises, improve the comedy, and make more compelling character arcs.

This show is average to a fault; you can watch it, but it doesn't pull you in, it doesn't know how to be compelling and I think this is because once you've seen several family dramas this one hasn't figured out what it's good at, and has not focused on that. I think most people will drop it. Some bits are skip able. There are some good and experienced actors in this but they are not given time to shine.

I think it should have either been made longer, and the characters arcs made more compelling; or shorter and remove some of the characters and plot lines to have made this show good. There are seeds of a good story in this, but they are not watered and weeded well.

As a plus. The show hasn't had an egregious plot line, there hasn't been unbelievable craziness that ruins the plots of some dramas. This makes it watchable and partially believable. Nothing jolts you into thinking "this is absurd". Overall I give it a 7 since here we rate things leniently. If other shows were rated properly it would be a 5 or 6 rated show; for us the MDL crowd 7 is a fair rating. You can watch it, but you won't be itching to talk to your friends about it.
