Everyone knows Nina Dobrev from her TVD days. Now Nina has moved on and she is currently starring on the newest CBS sitcom “Fam”. I must say I was really reluctant on starting this show due to the bad comments I saw on its trailer. However I’m really glad I gave it a shot because the pilot was really surprising and I will for sure keep following this series.

The episode starts with Clementine “Clem” at Nick’s parents’ house to announce their engagement. This is something Clem is eager to do because Nick and his parents are like her family. She doesn’t have any other family. Well that is a lie, but Nick and his parents will find out about that much later on the episode.

After the announcement engagement to Nick’s parents, the couple goes back home to find Shannon, Clem’s teenager half sister. She had broken into their home. Clem is shocked to learn that their father was the one teaching Shannon about breaking into places. She goes to see their father whom is very irresponsible; he believes everything Shannon says about school. He even believes she is on Christmas break (and it’s September), when the truth is that she dropped out of school.

The episode goes on with several funny scenes (most of them happening between Nick and Shannon). The highlight of the episode was when Clem’s and Shannon’s father (whom was supposed to be dead), appears at Nick’s parents’ house. He was moved by Clem’s conversation with him early on the episode. Shannon claims that it’s a miracle! Of course  this “miracle” isn’t really a miracle, and Clem has to explain the reasons why she lied to Nick about her father being dead. That scene between the couple was so cute! Shipping them so much already!

In the final scene we see Clem and Nick saying to Shannon that she can stay with them. After all, she is family well… fam.

I’m really excited to see the upcoming episodes. To see how all the relationships will develop (specially Nick’s and Sharon’s), and to see how will they manage to do better jokes. Let’s be honest, this episode could have had better jokes. Most importantly I want to see how the dynamics between the Fam will work.
