Not Just Me: (Almost Family) Pilot

I don't disagree with the Variety review - the show is way too sympathetic to Hutton's character. But as pilots go, I was hooked, and will keep watching.

I really liked the pilot and I hope they go in full for the consent angle. The other deceived sperm donor/adult shows have been way more tentative about the betrayal and trauma for the adult children and parents that can result and the way they used her hook-up for her realisation that her dad didn't care about her feelings was promising. Plus Timothy Hutton! I can't see him doing a show that goes full "this is actually funny and okay" because he's really good at charming assholes. The three sisters had a really nice easy chemistry and I liked the way the show centered on them. I'm hopeful.

I like Brittany Snow, but this is not as good as the original Australian version Sisters. Sisters was a comedy, but it looks like this version is a drama so, while the premise and most situations match the original, to me it just felt like it was missing something.
