Spoiler-Free Review of “Pivoting” on Fox: Dream Cast gives us plenty of laughs

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“We have to live our best lives now…”

Pivoting premiered on January 9th 2022 on Fox and Hulu. The comedy series stars Maggie Q, Ginnifer Goodwin and Eliza Coupe. Episodes air weekly and run for approximately 22-24 minutes.

Set in Long Island, New York, three best friends deal with the death of the fourth member of their group, as they come to the realization that they need to make some drastic changes in their lives while they still have time.

Here is the trailer:

Pivoting immediately gives off vibes of Bad Moms, Sex and the City and Desperate Housewives, as these three fantastic ladies bring a lot of laughs to the table. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

I can’t get enough of this trio!

I tuned into this show because I absolutely love Maggie Q and I will pretty much watch her in anything. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this show right from the start and the major reason why is because of the talent of these three ladies.

This show is witty and smart and it was a breath of fresh air.  More please!

A familiar premise but great delivery.

I’ve seen this type of show before but that doesn’t matter because I think this show is a true gem. The interaction between the three main characters just works effortlessly and the comedy didn’t feel forced, which often happens when I watch network sitcoms. So far it’s off to a great start!

The Cons:

The separate plots need some work…

I personally preferred the banter and the moments when the three main characters were together to their individual plots. There was nothing really wrong with them, but they felt a little generic and the true magic seemed to happen when they were all together. That might just be because the show is still trying to find its identity and what really works, but I’m confident that we will get there.

So am I in or out?

I’m in!

If you’re looking for a lighter comedy to indulge in, you’ve come to the right place. These three ladies deserve to be in the spotlight and so far I am loving this comedy gold. 

I can’t wait to see what happens next!
