    Oof, that was Rotten.

    Meh, it passed the time.

Critic Reviews for Almost Family Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

Almost Family has a lot of blind spots, but believability shouldn't be one of them.

So "Almost Family" made Hutton's Bechley an almost-loveable rogue, and his offspring almost-unbothered by the almost crime he perpetrated against them and countless others. No "almost" about that. It's flat-out creepy.

Top Critic

Standout performances and what looks to be a sure-fire, durable premise give Fox's Almost Family the key ingredients of a potentially long-running, soapy serial drama.

Top Critic

The problem with "Almost" isn't that it's about a serious crime - there is plenty of good and great television made about criminal activity - but that its world is wildly out of balance.

It's impossible to watch this drama about a fertility doctor... without being reminded of real-life cases, and the impact of such fraudulent, unethical conduct.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Unsettling family drama is profoundly ill-conceived.

Oct 22, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Almost Family has some good moments, but isn't good enough to overcome its dumbest plot devices.

Oct 3, 2019 | Full Review…

I would be all for a show about three adult women learning they're sisters, but Almost Family leans heavily on a gimmicky premise it doesn't need, one that ultimately tanks it.

Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a very weird hodgepodge of characters and motivations, made doubly awkward for being set against the backdrop of an investigation into Leon for fraud and sexual assault... Yet, despite all the weirdness, [it] is strangely not that interesting.

Oct 4, 2019 | Full Review…

It's almost decent writing (the pun is there if you want it to be) on a poorly executed show.

Oct 3, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The story and the characters are interesting enough, but whether or not it can sustain its momentum for an entire season is unclear. And I hate to say it, but where the story might be going is entirely predictable.

Oct 3, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5.0 | Full Review…

The series format suggests they might find a whole lot more sibs along the way.

Audience Reviews for Almost Family: Season 1

  • 5d ago
    Absolutely garbage, uninteresting BS
  • Nov 05, 2019
    I really tried to like it. I enjoy Brittany Snow and Emily Osment and was really hoping for a story that would use both of their comedic talents. However, the plot line is just too strange. I don't like the way they are portraying heavy topics like incest and sexual assault. There have been few good moments but I feel that the overall theme of the show is uncomfortable and I am concerned for its future.
  • Nov 04, 2019
    I really enjoy watching this series so far! It has a lot of different conflicts, without it being too much I expect to rate it even higher, when the season is finish.
  • Oct 31, 2019
    Great show, I'm already hooked can't wait to see the next episodes... Give it a chance to grow I hope...
  • Oct 23, 2019
    I love the sister dynamic. The premise of the show is different but the actors are great.
  • Oct 17, 2019
    I love it other than the in your face sexual content. I think the subject matter is about something that happens More than we would like to think and I will continue to watch.
  • Oct 17, 2019
    Unlike other shows on tv. It is funny, entertaining, the right amount of drama and feel good moments. Great cast. Emily Osmond and Brittany Snow shine.
  • Oct 14, 2019
    It seems that I'm with the majority of audience members and against the majority of critics in finding this show quite enjoyable.
  • Oct 12, 2019
    Charming characters! I giggled and teared up in 2nd episode. I am sure there are a lot of twists to come.
  • Oct 08, 2019
    So far it seems like the acting and chachters will be quality, wont know if it will be This Is Us quality until theres more episodes but I dont understand the low score honestly.
