Tv Season Info

In Season 1 of this sitcom, Harry Dacosta (Adam Korson), a likable bartender and permanent bachelor who lives a mostly carefree existence, finds himself confronted with a major responsibility after discovering that his previous forays into the world of sperm donation (he was young, stupid and needed the money) have resulted in two children who are eager to have him join their families. Harry gets a crash course in childrearing when 9-year-old Billy (William Ainscough) and precocious teen Anastasia (Abby Rose) quickly look to him as a father figure. And that leaves Billy's two moms Michelle (Amanda Brugel) and Zoey (Stephanie Anne Mills) and Anastasia's helicopter parents Janet (Laura De Carteret) and Jonathan (Matt Baram) with little choice but to try to accept Harry as part of their now blended brood. Making matters even more complicated, a smart and independent single gal named Rose (Carrie-Lynn Neales) is on the hunt for prime daddy material when a chance meeting on a bus leads her to make a baby with Harry as her sperm donor.

Give him [Adam Korson] a better show and we just might have the seed of something pretty good.

Far-fetched, distasteful, forced and frenzied.

Seed strikes the right balance between full-on chicanery and gushy nonsense; it's very aware of the ridiculous nature of its characters' relationships and just runs with it. That self-assurance is appealing.

Ultimately it will make you laugh, even if it does so at the expense of sensitive and serious issues.

Seed isn't great TV, but it's a funny enough diversion.

You've seen it all before. But there's a reason it keeps coming around again.

The show's setup is promising, and very of the moment.

Jul 14, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The show struggles a bit under the weight of Harry's unlikeable personality, but it understands the importance of heart to what is ostensibly a family sitcom, and the wide range of character types makes for dynamic story possibilities.

Networks can be cut some slack as they cast about for inexpensive programming, and while the show is cheery enough, it's still pretty tempting to throw out this baby with the bathwater.
