|Better With You Cast|
The series, which is created by Shana Goldberg-Meehan who previously worked on Friends, is about couples and relationships.
Here we have three of those at different stages of coupling:
- Maddie and Ben, high school sweethearts, have been together for nine years. They haven't gotten married but believes their union is a "valid life-choice".
- Mia and Casey only met less than two months ago and they surprise Maddie and Ben by announcing they are getting married/pregnant.
- Maddie and Mia are sisters. Maddie's a lot successful and Mia looks up to her. Ben's a nice, successful chap himself, much like Friend's Ross or Chandler; while Casey would have to be, uhm...early season Joey.
- The girls' parents have been married over 30 years and they're both real characters. They make fun of the fact that Maddie's made her "valid life-choice"; and they aren't bothered by the other fact that their youngest daughter, is rushing into marriage, when they are going to be grandparents.
I don't have any high hopes for this one, though. There's nothing ground breaking about this show. But then again, there's nothing groundbreaking about Two and A Half Men either....and look where it got them. I don't know who is watching that show (I don't. I don't anybody else who does, either!) but it's still on, and it's even a top-rater. So maybe Better With You will be this season's surprise. Who knows?
