Dads - Pilot

A comedy often relies on its actors. It can therefore absolutely be called daring to produce a completely new show with relatively unknown names. Fox dares to do this. Everybody will probably know Seth Green from various voice-overs (among others 'Family Guy'), but other than that, the four main characters aren't really captivating. And to be honest, this doesn't seem like a successful choice to me.

As can be expected, 'Dads' revolves around the relationship of two colleagues and their dads. Eli (Seth Green) and Warner (Giovanni Ribisi, 'My Name is Earl') are two successful game developers. Warner lives together with his girlfriend and his dad has joined them recently. He struggles to oppose his father, which constantly ensures uncomfortable situations.

In this pilot, Eli seems to be the prototype of a single. The usual singles' apartment, a lady lying in his bed who is not his girlfriend and a colleague of whom he can't take his eyes off. The relationship with his dad is much colder than Warner and his dad. Eli doesn't seem to feel anything for his father, which makes it even more strange that, at the end of the episode, he asks his dad to move in with him.

Honestly, I have to admit that I didn't get to laugh a single time during this episode. That of course should speak for itself. The 'jokes' are too cliche, but moreover not funny at all. The twenty minutes I got to see, were therefore very predictable. Actually, there was no unexpected twist. The fact that, at the last minute, the entire crew is laughing about a private picture of a poorly endowed Asian perfectly indicates the level.

The series originates from Seth McFarlane, who we all know as the spiritual father of 'Family Guy', 'American Dad' and 'The Cleveland Show'. Those animated series have had varying success, but were clearly more entertaining. Given the fact that 'Ted' also originates from McFarlane, I'd hoped that this series could be quite nice too. But this pilot, combined with the deadly competition, seem to me a recipe for early cancellation.
