I am not gonna recommend that you watch the 6 episodes, to what purpose? The main reason why this series made it here is because there was a certain expectation of it, probably because of the title and because John Cho was in it.

A to Z is a creation of Ben Queen, it’s another sitcom that got killed off after only 6 episodes. I am gonna be honest with you, I did not expect this, my expectation were high but they simply didn’t deliver and NBC was not patient.

Better luck next time, Mr. Queen. The audience simply wasn’t feeling it.

It has a quite interesting plot, an actor decides to stay at home and take care of the children while the mom goes out there and try to pursue her career.
