Joshua Hudson: Fox likes DADS, but that doesn’t mean you have to

by Joshua Hudson

Dads-TV-tvwriter.comDecent cast, below average script. Expected greatness from known producer, sour delivery of unoriginal premise.

That about sums up FOX’s Dads. Giovanni Ribsi deserves so much better. Still not sure that Seth Green does.

Dads centers on Eli (Green) and Warner (Ribsi) who own a video game development company. They clearly have “interesting” relationships with their dads.
