Abby's is another new comedy series of the season that really hits and misses the mark, but I still think it could be one of the best new series of the year. Here's a recap!
In the pilot, we meet Abby, who's a military veteran, who happens to run a bar in her backyard of a rental home. Abby's is pretty popular with her friends and co-workers, but when she finds out that her landlord has passed and has a new one, her nephew, Bill.
Bill doesn't like what he sees and talks to Abby about shutting the whole place down. Abby tries her best to not let that happen; it's her friends and co-workers that help save the place when they tell Bill that the bar is the one place that Abby can own. After that Bill allows Abby to continue with the bar; but ask to at least get insurance just in case someone gets hurt.
The pilot isn't the greatest of all time, but it's got moments that shows it has legs. I'm interested in the characters and even though some of the jokes are a bit goofy, it's got me laughing. Natalie Morales is the glue that holds this show together with a good group of a cast. I'll be tuning in to see where this show will be going. Even though it has that Cheers vibe to it, it's still good anyway. Overall, I give this episode an 8.5/10.
