Advertisements Call Your Mother, a new ABC sitcom, premiered Wed Jan 13 2021. Stars Kyra Sedgwick. wiki The series follows an empty nest mother, who decides to be close to her children by moving cross country in order to be with them, much to their chagrin. Very mixed opinions on this. I almost stopped watching ten minutes in, then it got better, then it got funny, then it didn't, then it ended ok. Like watching a roller coaster of . Part of the problem for me is Kyra Sedgwick. She just isn't working for me in this role. She's not the kind of personality I would have cast. She has an edge to her that plays wrong in this setting (IMHO). Great for Deputy Chief Madeline Wuntch, not so great for this. I like the kids, the partners are funny, potential with the Incredi-Host. But she isn't working for me. Maybe it'll get better. We'll see how the next episode or two settle in.
