Awesome family sitcom!
10 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

SurvivingJack is bringing back many of my childhood/teen memories....that is a good thing! If my children were still home,we would be watching together and laughing hysterically. Love,love,love Jack's character. Such great ideas for parenting! The setup Jack planned to teach the boys the consequence of taking something not belonging to them was perfect. I actually look forward to watching each week and find myself laughing out loud, my cat even looks at me like I'm crazy. I look forward to the next episode very curiously as to what life lessons are in store for the television family. So far rating in my opinion is perfect for preteen and older to view. KUDOS to writers, staff, and actors.
