News & Interviews for Home Economics: Season 1
The characterizations are uneven... But the balance between sibling meanness and sibling love is handled well, and the dialogue steers into Grace's gift with wry, needy sarcasm and Tatro's talent for making a type of lunkhead lovable.
While there is strength in the chemistry and in the specificity of some jokes, the idea is still a bit too generic overall to generate much anticipation.
All told, the concept and casting have promise. But while it features a modern family, at first blush, Home Economics is no Modern Family.
ABC's Home Economics has a canny central idea and a game cast, and though its first two episodes lack a certain surefootedness, there is potential there.
Could have been a solid sitcom about Connor moving back to the west coast... But bringing money into the proceedings does what money tends to do: it snarls everything up into a complicated, ugly mess.
The perfect combination of drama and comedy with a story based about something everyone can relate to -- family issues.
Topher Grace is back in peak sitcom form as a lovably dweeby struggling writer...
The chemistry among the ensemble is so good that we're hoping the show gets better over time.
It's a breezy watch with a casually zany hangout energy, and it hits on some touchy subjects without getting too deep with them. It's tough to talk about money sometimes, but the Home Economics crew finds a way to make it almost fun.
Not sure how much mileage they can get from this premise, but seems OK in the meantime.
Audience Reviews for Home Economics: Season 1
Apr 29, 2021I think this show is not perfect, but it is entertaining and refreshing, especially compared to a lot of other mediocre shows that manage to be on TV. Also, I love Topher Grace and I think he's underrated as an actor!
Apr 28, 2021Just not funny. Unlikeable characters. Boring, rehashed plots. How is this show on its 3rd episode?
Apr 17, 2021Great show funny and great actors! Also please don't cancel this show all my fav shows get canceled
Apr 16, 2021Thought it was mildly above average. The premise allows it room to grow. Hopefully its shakely legs will find firmer ground.
Apr 09, 2021A lot of good potential here. Can definitely see this being the next "family" show.
Apr 09, 2021Terrific pilot! Fun characters, great cast, and real heart. Will be on my watch list!
Apr 09, 2021It's a really great show, hoping to see what's coming!
Apr 08, 2021Nauseating. Provides nothing of value to the viewer.
