COUNTRY COMFORT is a total waste of your time. Katharine McPhee is miscast as the bungling character, Bailey. She is not believable as a nanny, nor is her country twang.

Yes, Katharine can sing, and she proves this in every episode, but singing and playing the guitar does not make up for bad acting. The COUNTRY COMFORT ensemble is also guilty of this too. Singing cannot erase the over-the-top lack of authentic acting skills. Just because you have five child actors in the show does not give the director license to over-do the cuteness factor in every scene.

COUNTRY COMFORT’s script are also questionable. Who would ever hire Bailey with all of her poor life choices and then keep her around to help guide the struggling family after the loss of their mother? Did I mention, Katharine McPhee can sing?

COUNTRY COMFORT is available to stream for the singing on Netflix.
