4. Reception

Joel Keller of Decider writes that the sitcom is okay to stream. Berger and Bycel "and their comedy pedigrees help make the show a tiny bit better than your average TGIF/Nick/Disney family sitcom. That doesn’t mean that it’s a good show, but at least it’s not terrible." He says that Big Show can do physical comedy very well, that Munn has played the "mom in the kid space role" before and "handles it like a pro", and that the kids are the "usual mix of overly-verbal and super-precocious kids". Matt Fowler of IGN describes it as "has the potential to be either wholly terrible or fully great. The truth, overall, lies somewhere in between as Big Show proves himself to be an amiable, glowing, towering family man capable of carrying multi-cam sitcom shenanigans." Randall Colbum of AV Club also likens the sitcom to the TGIF sitcoms of the 1990s, and writes that "As tends to happen in these sorts of stories, the very act of a man so large demonstrating vulnerability is all the punchline an audience needs." Common Sense Media gave the show three out of five stars, saying: "Wrestling family sitcom is a little rough but mostly sweet."
