In this episode we preview CBS’ new comedy Life in Pieces. It stars James Brolin (Pensacola: Wings of Gold), Dianne Wiest (In Treatment), Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad), Dan Bakkedahl (Veep), Thomas Sadoski (The Newsroom), Angelique Cabral (Enlisted), Colin Hanks (The Good Guys) and Zoe Lister Jones (Whitney).

Life In Pieces is a single-camera comedy about a big family and the wacky things they get into and milestone moments they share. There are three siblings. The middle child that may have just found that special someone in a co-worker. The youngest brother and his wife that have just had their first child. And, the oldest sister and her husband preparing for a coming too soon empty nest. Their parents are dealing with getting older. The stories of the family unfold in four short stories each episode, as they enjoy the little pieces of time they have together, because they are what life is all about.

Life in Pieces feels a lot like ABC’s Modern Family, just with slightly different family dynamics and a twist in how the stories are told each week.

    A perfect example of what is wrong with today’s so-called tv comedies. I found this to be stupid, non-sensicle, disgusting and a waste of good talent. After seeing “The Intern” at the movies recently, I questioned why couldn’t tv comedies be as pleasant, truly funny, and satisfying as this movie.
    Obviously, I will not be watching more of this trash.
