Everything’s Gonna Be Okay (Freeform) Rated NR

After their father’s untimely death, Nicholas and his two half-sisters must learn to live together. Starring Kayla Cromer, Adam Faison, and Maeve Press.

I was pleasantly surprised by this show. It’s not the best show, but it has heart. Nicholas, who hasn’t been around his father or sisters in years, comes for a visit and discovers that his father is dying. Now, he takes on the responsibility of caring for his two teenage sisters, one of whom is on the autism spectrum. The problem with the show is that the first episode rushed through to establish the characters and the story. One storyline that should’ve been explored more is the death of the father. One minute the father is there looking pretty healthy, and the next day, he’s dead. If he had cancer, it wouldn’t have been that quick. The other issue is that it’s unclear where the sister lands on the spectrum – it’s confusing. To top it off, she looks like she is at least five years older than her character. Josh Thomas, who plays the brother, is brilliant as the gay brother who doesn’t know what he is doing but tries. This show just has all the feels and is worth a watch.
