Wanted to see this because it's the only new comedy show that got renewed on ABC, but it was just ok imo. I do like the 80s vibe and references though... Hope it gets better.

Similar in style to Everybody Hates Chris, but not as funny as EHC. It could also be compared to The Wonder Years. The show has a narrator telling the story of his childhood 20 years earlier, similar to both previously mentioned shows, but it doesn't capture the magic that those two shows had. Just like EHC it is based on the childhood of an actor/comedian. This time Adam Goldberg, while EHC was based on the childhood of Chris Rock

I was a teenager during the 80s and the music in the show was great, but it lacked humor. Worth watching just for the music and for the movie / tv references from the 80s.
