When I found out about the new City (previously City TV) show Seed, which premiered on February 4, I thought I’d see what they’ve been up to in terms of Canadian television.
Seed is about a guy named Harry Dacosta (Adam Korson), who had his sperm frozen 15 years ago. In the present day, his supposed donor kids have come knocking on his door calling him their dad. Right off the bat, I’m thinking this sounds a lot like the 1999 Adam Sandler movie Big Daddy, but I digress. After I saw the second episode, I thought they could milk the plot for a bit.
For me, this would be better promoted as a dramedy, rather than a comedy, because that’s exactly what you’re getting. I didn’t care about any of the characters, except surprisingly for the kids. One good aspect the show dealt with were typical teen problems. However, once I saw the second episode, I already felt bored with the characters and the story (I said they could milk it, I didn’t say it was worth milking). Pass on it, Canada.
