Decent 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. Warner’s dad (played by the always affable Martin Mull) has just moved in and immediately cements his presence by spoiling a huge business deal that the guys were trying to close with investors from China. Warner has a hard time standing up to his dad because he’s a “Golden Retriever with a briefcase.”
