What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Upon first watching, seemed good, but now I realize that it's trying to copy Shameless (US), however failing to keep up to its quality. The comedy and jokes Speechless offers isn't a complete flop, yet they could do better. They feel out of place and more of a 'punchline' type rather than integrated in the actual life characters are living - the viewer can't escape knowing that they are watching a comedy show, rather than forgetting about real life and emerging themselves with it.
They attempt to have heartfelt moments in the family, but at the end of the day it all combined feels mediocre at best.
