Let's just get this out in the open: The whole show seems like a total ripoff of Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm made for anyone who would never subscribe to HBO. Paul Reiser is playing a semiautobiographical version of himself as a former TV star who is living the new American dream as a dude who doesn't really do anything more than get into trouble with his friends and family. However, unlike David, the misanthropic prick, Reiser is way too likable. If Reiser's character here is anything like his Mad About You persona, Paul Buchman, his eccentricities will only be charming and lovable. A combination of traits that make for a sitcom full of slow, forced jokes aimed too broadly to ever actually land for anyone. In other words, this is dad TV in its purest form.
