Some good acting nearly makes the show bearable. Ellen Burstyn offers a deeply-felt performance as the sunny, somewhat delusional actress-mom. Perfectly cast as the scruffy reprobate of a dad, a jaunty John Glover lounges around being wonderfully scornful of the entire proceedings. We share his feelings.
