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 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.
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.
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!!
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).
