This show is on rails for being the typical TV Single Dad show: it’s got the grieving dad (“after what happened to your mother!”), the angry teenaged daughter who can’t talk to her dad (“after what happened to Mom!”), the understanding (yet as yet unacknowledged) Grandfather who has a close relationship with the daughter, and all the predictable possibilities that come prepackaged with a premise like this.
