THE FAMILY Review: “What Took So Long”

ABC announced earlier this week that The Family would not be returning for a second season, so this week’s season finale would also serve as series finale. And, of course, it ends with two cliffhangers, never to be explored further.

THE FAMILY Review: “Election Day”

There’s only one episode left in The Family and the show’s no closer to offering up any sort of resolution to any of its main storylines.

THE FAMILY Review: “Fun Ways To Tell Boyfriend You’re Pregnant”

The Family, you’ve done it again. This episode was middling, with some unsuccessful attempts to get us to care about characters who are pretty much unredeemable, but it ended with a twist that guarantees I’ll tune in next week.

THE FAMILY Review: “Betta Male”

The Family followed its classic structure this week: a frustrating on so many different levels episode that ends with a few reveals/cliffhangers that make me want to tune in the next week. However, in its ninth outing, this formula is offering diminishing rewards.

THE FAMILY Review: “Sweet Jane”

The unprofessionalism of Detective Meyer and the Maine police department apparently rubbed off on their FBI counterparts in another ridiculous, frustrating episode of The Family.

THE FAMILY Review: “All the Livelong Day”

Strong performances from Alison Pill and Joan Allen make this episode compulsively watchable, but the show raised even more questions while only answering a few.

Not everything was perfect in this episode, but the big reveal at the end made it all worth it.

The Family finally reveals a major secret about Adam’s identity. And just like that, I’m into this show again.

THE FAMILY Review: “Feathers or Steel”

This week’s episode was slow-moving, revealing little new information while focusing on the search for a different missing child. It was definitely the most boring epsiode yet, but next week’s should be intense, as the ending here promises major fallout.

THE FAMILY Review: “Of Puppies And Monsters”

This week’s episode of The Family reveals more details about the pock-marked man who kept Adam (or should I say “Adam”, because I’m still not convinced he’s actually their child). Not everything completely works, but to the show’s credit, I’m still hooked on the mystery. I need answers!!

THE FAMILY Review: “All You See Is Dark”

Episode two of The Family was considerably less exciting than the premiere. It felt as if the show was spinning its wheels, hammering home the same points again and again (mainly, Adam probably isn’t Adam and Hank isn’t completely innocent).
