HOME ECONOMICS continues delivering some of the best, subtle comedy and truthful moments on television this season.

Sibling jealousy over who Mom and Dad love best was the theme. And their point of reference was which brother or sister receives the most visits from their parents. Connor, being the youngest of the three, is winning. Chaos ensues. Which one is the favorite and does eating too much ice cream at a time good for anyone? Luckily, it all makes sense in the end.

HOME ECONOMICS works so well because the writers and director gives this talented ensemble (Topher Grace, Jimmy Tatro, Caitlin McGee) real moments we can all relate to in life. The actors breathe authenticity and naturalness into each scene. I am totally hooked. The repartee is fast, and I believe they are all family. It feels familiar as if we have felt this same way before around our own siblings.

HOME ECONOMICS is a hit. It entertains and gives us the opportunity to look at life from all sides…being a kid, to an adult and as a grandparent. It is available to stream on ABC Television.
