Life in Pieces

CBS 2015

Comedy about one big happy family and their sometimes awkward, often hilarious and ultimately beautiful milestone moments as told by its various members. Of the three siblings, middle child Matt may have just found his true love, his co-worker, Colleen; his coddled youngest brother, Greg, and his wife, Jen, are overwhelmed by the birth of their first child; and the eldest, Heather, and her husband, Tim, are dreading their impending empty nest so much, they're considering having another baby. Their parents are Joan the family's adoring matriarch who would do anything for her kids - as long as she agrees with it - and John, the gregarious patriarch who's searching for ways to soften the blow of turning 70. As the family's lives unfold in four short stories each week, they try to savor these little pieces of time that flash by but stay with you forever, because these moments add up to what life's all about.

Pretty funny. I like when Jen says her vagina after having a baby; looks like the Predator when he took his mask off.


The only show I've ever watched that has the family dynamic so perfect, I'd swear they use my family as their muse.


reminds me of Modern Family. Very good so far hope the show makes the cut for a second season


Easily one of the funniest sitcoms on tv, still can't believe that they shortened the season and then proceeded to cancel the show...yet much worse and much less funny shows continue to bring drudgery and misery to those looking for entertainment


Life In Pieces is legitimately hilarious. It's much different than any other sitcom on CBS, the writers have been on point since the start and the whole cast is great.


Really good show. Very funny. Hopefully it can keep it up and not go soft like most shows do theses days.


Tim is the funniest guy ever ...


Best comedy I have seen

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
