‘Life in Pieces’ Episode Guide (March 9): An Old Family Feud Resurfaces

“Dirtbike Old Mechanic Earthquake” (03/09/17) – Greg stirs up an old family feud when he finds money he accused Matt of stealing from him when they were younger. Also, Joan takes offense when Heather writes off her forgetfulness as “old age”.

Meanwhile, Colleen confronts a mechanic she believes is sexist; and Tim makes the kids go through an impromptu earthquake drill to see if they could figure out how to get home without money or cell service, on “Life in Pieces,” Thursday, March 9 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Ty Barnett guest stars in this episode as Dabney.

“Dirtbike Old Mechanic Earthquake” was written by Greg Malins and directed by Jonathan Judge.

CBS’s “Life in Pieces” is a single-camera comedy about one big happy family and their sometimes awkward, often hilarious and ultimately beautiful milestone moments as told by its various members.

Of the three siblings, middle child Matt may have just found his true love, his co-worker, Colleen; his coddled youngest brother, Greg, and his wife, Jen, are overwhelmed by the birth of their first child; and the eldest, Heather, and her husband, Tim, are dreading their impending empty nest so much, they’re considering having another baby.

Their parents are Joan, the family’s adoring matriarch who would do anything for her kids – as long as she agrees with it – and John, the gregarious patriarch who’s searching for ways to soften the blow of turning 70. As the family’s lives unfold in four short stories each week, they try to savor these little pieces of time that flash by but stay with you forever, because these moments add up to what life’s all about.

“Life in Pieces” stars Dianne Wiest (Joan), James Brolin (John), Zoe Lister-Jones (Jen), Colin Hanks (Greg), Angelique Cabral (Colleen), Thomas Sadoski (Matt), Betsy Brandt (Heather), Dan Bakkedahl (Tim), Niall Cunningham (Tyler), Holly J. Barrett (Samantha), and Giselle Eisenberg (Sophia).

Justin Adler, Aaron Kaplan, Jason Winer and Jeff Morton serve as Executive Producers of “Life in Pieces.” The comedy series was created by Justin Adler. “Life in Pieces” is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association with Kapital Entertainment.
