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 Veteranโ€™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.
