    He was actually one of the original leads (as the same character he's been recurring recently) from the first couple of seasons of SVU.

    Off the subject, but I just realized that I hadn't seen a second episode of We are Men, and I realized it was canceled. With the big name guys in it, how did it get canceled so fast?

    Because the non big name lead and narrator was AWFUL. I could barely tolerate him, and only did for the other three. A shame because the others are great.

    Side note... I realize Jerry O'Connell was a chubby kid but he is way overcompensating. Please, please eat a sandwich. He doesn't even look healthy.

    I'm surprised several of you enjoyed this show - I can't stand it. I can forgive the pilot for focusing so much on Andy, but this show is literally just a vehicle for him to have his own show. I think I laughed twice total in the first 3 episodes. SP deleted.

    There are better comedies out there - Crazy Ones, Modern Family, Parks and Rec.

    Last night's ep was the best of the season so far, I thought. It's still not laugh out loud funny, but it's warm and amusing, which goes a long way when I'm trying to figure out if I want to give a TV show some time to figure itself out.

    I am enjoying this show very much. As much as early Parks and Rec, which only got better as time went on.

    I usually get one or two laughs out loud during each episode. Which is more than most comedies do for me.

    Very much enjoyed the Halloween episode. I may borrow the "crime scene tape" wrap for a costume. I loved the Captain in his uniform but with an eye patch. Great show I hope it is around for awhile.

    I never got into Parks or Community but this I am enjoying and may go look take a second look at those now.

    Really? The fact that different people have different opinions about what's funny is news to you?

    Enjoy! Don't let the screen door hit ya where the good lord split ya!

    Wow, you're a little rude. I didn't know sharing my opinion was contrary to commenting on a forum. I didn't say other people were wrong, I just didn't imagine that other people would like the show. It's a free country, people can watch what they like.

    That made me laugh!!

    Yes, Modern Family and Crazy Ones are funny. Maybe funnier, but this has a different style to it. I really got the feeling of The Office - only without them talking to the camera. Especially this last episode. I hope it does get picked up again next season.

    I think saying that you can't believe some of us like it is a bit rude too.

    Sure, you can tell us you don't like it, but then don't be so surprised if some of us do. It is all opinion and everyone has different likes and dislikes.

    Did you know that both B99 and P&R are created by the same people? Doesn't mean that everyone will like both, I just think they have similar comedic styles.

    Not only that, but P&R was borderline terrible (at the least, it was very unfunny) when it first started. And now it's the best comedy on TV (if not the best show on network TV).

    So there's a reason why some of us are giving it a shot - it's already better than P&R was when it started. (FTR, P&R didn't show much in the way of promise until its 6th ep, which was the 1st season finale. That was first the hint we had of what it would soon become).

    Fair enough. In my head it sounded more like "I'm surprised that so many people like this show", not a sarcastic comment.

    To me it's getting more of a Barney Miller vibe with each episode. And that's a good thing. If they will tone down Samberg down just one more notch I would like it even better.
