UNITED STATES OF AL centered around health issues for Art (Dean Norris). It was great advice for viewers watching his situation unfold.
It emphasized how a family comes together when necessary. The writers showed how much each character cares for one another. It was sweet, but I miss Al (Almir Kalyan) being Al. This was the original hook for this sitcom. I am patiently waiting.
UNITED STATES OF AL needs to find its way back to the Veteran’s theme and assimilating Afghanistan refugees. Otherwise, it is just like any other comedy sitcom. It was a stronger show when it had specific intentions. It is available to stream on CBS/PARAMOUNT.
