You know, I may not have been 100 percent on board with NBC's last attempt at creating its own Modern Family-style comedy hit, Ryan Murphy's The New Normal, but I did appreciate that show's full-throated endorsement of blended families and the way it filtered the relationships between parents and their children (both of the grown-up and still-youthful variety) through a sweetly sarcastic lens. I found myself particularly missing Normal while watching its replacement: Welcome to the Family, a more straightforward Modern Family knock-off that's twice as annoying even the worst episode of The New Normal… and possibly even Glee. (Though that's a harder case to make, what with last season's school-shooting episode, among other things.)
The short answer to that question is yes. Zombies make everything better. But unfortunately this week's episode of Hellcats was only good during the course of the zombie movie, and the rest of it was an awkward disaster. It's a secret shame of mine that I've been watching this show since the beginning, but n my defense, it's an awful trainwreck that I just can't take my eyes off of. The show's about a cheerleading law student who gets people out of jail and gets laws overturned, but who loves wearing half-shirts and appears to spend the majority of her time in a bar obsessing over boys instead of studying. In other words, it's mesmerizingly absurd and I was hoping that the addition of zombies would push the preposterousness into full-on guilty pleasure mode. Unfortunately, that didn't happen.
