They need an emergency babysitter and Will suggests Buck. Instead of meeting his girlfriend's father for a job, Buck eagerly accepts babysitting. Buck gets thrown out and is jobless. Alexis asks him to stay with the family.
This is the definition of network TV sitcom. The movie connection does not help. In fact, it hurts terribly. It looks bad by comparison. It feels derivative. Some may compare it to Black-ish and this show doesn't come off well. It's nice to have another black family on network TV but that's about it. The characters are nice and unoriginal. If one forgets about the movie connection, this is functional network TV.
