AMAZON PICK THIS SHOW UP!!!
Just found out the incompetent morons at CBS have made another incomepetent decision regarding this show. Amazon pick this up now! I love this show, it's lighthearted, it's funny, it's the perfect escape from the rude real world. I've re-watched this whole series on Amazon Prime several times, twice in the past month or so!

Well worth the wait for season 4 - terrible news on its cancellation
It took ages to show Season 4 thanks to CBS in America scheduling it much later in the season than normal and now they have cancelled it meaning this short season will be its last.
This Is one of (if not) the funniest tv shows I have seen in years.
It’s like a real life early Simpson’s yet it is so relatable to family life.
Come on amazon save Life In Pieces and give it a new home.

superb writing continues
This is one of my favourite shows. the 30min clips are just the right tonic for laughter and the storylines are well thought out. Old fashioned good humour, if I'm allowed to say so.
The series has been getting better with each season and the actors are well cast.
Keep on, keeping on

Top, top comedy.
Thank heavens! The funniest show on television is back. Really missed the excellent character, acting and scripts. This is complete comedy of the highest calibre.

It's gone from good to extraordinarily good - yet cancelled on 8th May 2019
This is the best yet of such a good series. The dramatic elements, without comedy, have lifted it into another level. Tim's health, Colleen and Matt's search for a child... wonderful performances. Yet CBS announced they were cancelling the series on 8th May. I just hope the decision is reversed.

here again ' gone again
Yet again a brilliant show. Highly rated ( at least on Prime ) returns , gives us a few episodes, pauses then is cancelled. Does not Amazon take on these runs with any sort of agreement to provide a season of episodes before this happens.?
Surely the Amazon audience is sufficient to maintain viewer figures. I suspect it is only tv viewing figures that are taken into account. So lets enjoy a final brief season

Hit and miss
I really enjoyed the first season and I can very much relate the character Jen who doesn't want to spend all of her free time with her husband's family. The show can be quite funny at time and other times very cringe-worthy!
I agree with another review about the pageant episode and trying getting the toddler girl to twerk. Gross! There are a lot of moments normalizing the sexualisation of minors throughout the series. In season 4 episode 6, one of Sophia's prepubescent friends referred to Sophia's grandfather as "your hot grandpa" that I found really weird / gross / inappropriate / cringe-worthy! This was a little girl maybe 8 years old being given the line of calling an 80 year old actor "grandpa hot" - played by James Brolin is 81 years old. WTF to the writers, directors, cast, crew, parents of the child actor. You could tell the kid felt uncomfortable saying the line. What 8 year old is going to find an 80 year old hot?!?

Promting sexuliseation of children!
I stopped in season 3 episode 16 due to content about beauty pageants for lark.
I would not have had an issue with this normally, but teaching a minor to twerk is to far, its not a preference its disgusting.
The bit that I stopped on was asking an underage little girl if she knows how to twerk.. Twerking is a highly sexual dance that makes females move their hips in a way that they would when riding their male partner. that makes grown woman look slutty. Getting children to do this is like training them to attract predators and or normalizing the sexualisation of minors.
Believe me you don't want your children abused!!

Sadly as this show was quite entertaining and I very much enjoyed it up to that point!
