I gave Baby Daddy a try mostly because Tahj Mowry is in it and I’ve been a fan of him ever since Smart Guy. Now my opinion is based on the pilot at the moment.
The plot is enjoyable and kind-of-sort-of-obvious, but I think the writer tried too hard on making it funny. To me some of the comedic scenes seemed forced like–this is funny NOW LAUGH!
I do like the chemistry between the actors, it felt right.
The whole hidden one-sided love has a hint of becoming a triangle.
But overall it was nice and pleasant to watch. It does stay in its family-centric universe which at times is hard to keep.
So far I haven’t found a favorite character yet but we shall see since I will continue to watch it. One can’t judge a series by the first episode. Remember that.
One last thing, I don’t know about you but I thought Riley’s backstory of being overweight had a sprinkle of Monica from Friends there.
That might just be me who thinks that though.
Until next time,
