    Wow, I can't believe anyone liked the pilot episode of this show. I thought it was absolutely painful to watch. Season pass deleted.

    Episode 3 wasn't at good as the first 2, but still funny.

    I actually thought the opposite. Episode 3 made it a keeper for me. The only part I don't like is the annoying non-cop.

    Agree about the non-cop, she annoys me. She reminds me of the parts that Molly Shannon always plays, which I can't stand.

    I really like this show. Agree about the non-cop. She's annoying. But I really like the interplay with Samberg and Brougher.

    We watched the last episode based on some recommendations. Wow, what an absolutely unfunny show. I agree with bengalfreak, I don't get all the love. I didn't even smile, it just made me angrier.

    Third ep. was better than the second, which was better than the first. I agree that Gina is a waste of screen time, at least so far.

    Of the new sitcoms I'm watching this year, so far this one seems to be the best.

    I'm done after 1-1/2. Used to like Samberg on SNL but not anymore. The Unusuals was much funnier (and it wasn't a sitcom).

    I feel like this show could use about 30% less Andy Samberg and about 200% more Terry Crews.

    I agree! I watched the pilot and the second episode and that was it. Disappointing as I usually liked all of the stuff Samberg did on SNL and especially liked his Digital Shorts (yes, I know he had a lot of help with them). So I had high hopes for this show but its just TERRIBLE!!!

    I like it, I find Gina to be quite amusing, similar to April on Parks and Rec, they are finding their footing imo.

    Not there yet but I am not really on board though. I have not really enjoyed any of the episodes so far but the creators have a huge amount of rope with me.

    Maybe my standards are low, but I'm really enjoying this. Love Braugher's character. Like the supporting characters.

    Just feel like Sandberg has it dialed to 11 and should take it down to 8 or so.

    I've seen shows much worse than this. Season pass is still holding.

    And what shows are much worse that lost its season pass with one viewing? Dads, Men With Kids, and a show whose name I've forgotten but it took place at an animal hospital and featured a comic monkey.

    I like all the other characters but Samberg's Peralta would be the one that would cause me to toss this show.

    They either need to tone him down or reduce his part.

    I actually think Samberg has been getting better each week. In the last episode, where he was "number two", he was far less manic and over the top. His character still has a very big personality--that's his character. But he doesn't seem nearly as much like he's in a an extra-long SNL sketch as he did in the pilot.
