“Council of Dads”


Have you seen the new TV show “Council of Dads” yet? If your answer is no, it is not too late to check out this timely show currently airing on NBC. Episodes 1-5 is available for viewing on Hulu, and the NBC App. The cast members include Sarah Wayne Callies, Clive Standen, Tom Everett Scott, J. August Richards, Blue Chapman, Emjay Anthony, Michele Weaver, Thalia Tran, Steven Silver, and Michael O’Neill
In the pilot episode of “Council of Dads,” we meet the Perry family. The patriarch Scott Perry ( Tom Everett Scott) has a terminal illness. Before his passing the terminally ill father decides to recruit three of his closest friends to assist with fathering his five children and supporting his wife.
The show tugs at your heart as we see the grieving family navigate through daily life. The three dads in the council are eager to help the family. I like the fascinating dynamic that exists among each family member. The oldest daughter (Michele Weaver) tries to come to terms with her father’s substance issues, a younger adopted daughter (Thalia Tran) searches for answers into her adoption story. A third daughter, who identifies as a boy (Blue Chapman ) has to learn to cope with prejudice against trans kids like him.
The oldest son ( Emjay Antony ) acts like a typical teen who experiences emotional turmoil due to the death of his beloved father.
In a time where people are dealing with Covid-19 “Council of Dads” offers hope for humanity. It is refreshing to see you do not have to be related by blood to be a family. I highly recommend watching the “Council of Dads.”

    Such a great show about a blended family and its friends and how they are dealing with the loss of someone so dear to all of them.
    So much caring for each other in their own special ways. A must see if you’re not already hooked!! ❤️

    Love, love, love this show. The writing is great and the casting is phenomenal. Each of the actors totally owns the part. The storylines are unique, I love the diversity of the characters, and the Savannah setting and beautiful lake house are just lovely to see. I really, really hope we’ll see seaon 2.

    I am so happy NBC stepped up to put this show on the air and I pray it is here for a long time. Blended families are wonderful families. We all bleed the same way. This is the kind of family I get to know as a crossing guard (12 years) as our local elementary school. I try to tell a story for each of my now 555 hats and costumes and let each child know they should be their self no matter who they are.
