News & Interviews for Call Your Mother: Season 1
The most memorable character on "Call Your Mother" is a cute, cuddly golden retriever - which speaks volumes about the show's chances going forward.
If the show is too timid to give its protagonist any flaws other than "loving her children too much," it's at least auspicious in exploring how her helicopter parenting has affected her children, especially their relationship to each other.
The show has a pleasant warmth, but it seems to have too little of a sense about what within it works to find its footing.
Ms. Sedgwick seems positioned to carry most of the burden, and other than Jean being meddlesome or looking for a sex life, there aren't any obvious avenues to be followed.
There isn't even a glimmer that you can identify that will make you think the show can find itself.
Sometimes there's comfort in that kind of familiarity, but only rarely, and this doesn't seem like one of the few exceptions.
Oh, there are a few chuckles... More often, though, Call Your Mother is unleashing punchlines that misfire or just plain miss.
Audience Reviews for Call Your Mother: Season 1
7h agoSuch a funny, fresh look at what happens when your kids are grown. Are you still a mother? The answer is YES! It's refreshing to see a mom on TV that can actually be the Mom (age wise). An DAMN, Kyra Sedgewick is FUNNY. Such good writing and a great cast.
