The Goodwin Games - Pilot Review

FOX's midseason comedy The Goodwin Games revolves around three siblings—Henry (Scott Foley), Chloe (Becki Newton) and Jimmy (played by Jake Lacy in the Pilot but will now be played by T.J. Miller). After their father passes away, he has left them a $23 million inheritance. Through several VCR tapes left behind for his three children, they are to follow their father's instructions to compete for the money.

The Pilot Episode was more enjoyable than I expected it to be. Becki Newton and Scott Foley both had great comedic timing, and the chemistry between the two was delightful to watch as well. The one weak spot was the youngest brother, Jimmy. An ex-con guitarist who is released from prison in the first episode, Jimmy was the weakest character in the cast. He was neither funny nor was his story with his daughter compelling.

While predictable at certain parts, this was one of the better comedy entries this season. FOX also managed to slip in a American Idol alum's song, Phillip Phillips' debut single "Home" at the end as well. All in all, The Goodwin Games is a fun and funny look at the lives of three adult siblings that falls somewhere in between a family comedy and the older skewing sitcoms like New Girl and Happy Endings.

Coming to FOX in 2013. **Please note that this is only a preview of the early version of the pilot**
