I enjoyed the show. Also enjoyed that it was commercial free!
In trying to be three different kinds of shows amalgamated into one, it is only three mediocre versions of those shows. If it would decide what it wants to be the creators would be focused and not have the burden of trying to be all things at once and could produce a better product.
You mean like the Dick Van Dyke show that had the office stuff and the home stuff. Tried to be too many things. Ha! Shows don't need a single tone.
Anyway, I did not get that feeling at all for the pilot.
No laugh track. Not sure when I'm supposed to laugh.
Probably not the show for you then.
Dick Van Dyke's dual sets is not two tones. The Dick Van Dyke Show had only one tone.
I thought this first episode was OK. I guess a comedy about a support group for loss seems kinda odd. I'll keep watching for now.
Okay. You get to define tone, then. Sigh.
I enjoyed it; will definitely look for its return.
Took me a few minutes, but recognized the kid from "Everybody Hates Chris" all grown up, playing Owen!
Downloaded this from DTV OD and thought it was pretty good. Not great, but watchable.
I don't really see how it can last too long though, it's one of those offbeat shows that I can totally see most folks watching and quickly dumping because it's not the traditional laugh track kind of comedy.
I'm sure many folks who loved Friends keep hoping Mathew Perry (sp) will go right back to slapstick type comedy shows, and when they see this kind of comedy, they tune out pretty quickly.
I'll watch come September just to see how it plays out.
I really liked it so it will be one of my new show additions for the summer.
It doesn't start until Sept. 11.
Oops, I meant Fall.
I thought it was kind of contrived at the end, but I'll watch it again.
Friends was hardly a "slapstick-type comedy show". In fact, for all of the earlier talk about "tone", Friends had at least two different tones and was able to manage them deftly and adeptly.
As for the Go On pilot, I liked it well enough to keep watching.
I liked it a little, my wife liked it a lot. I definitely see the potential. It will be SPed in my house.
I missed setting the recording but a search on UVerse shows Go On is available on Demand until October, dunno from where other NBC.
I'll watch anon.
I enjoyed the show. It was a fresh change for me and I was quite surprised to see Matthew Perry in a comical role filled with darker shades. Not that he is playing a negative character, but a cynical character is something that we haven’t seen Mathew do before. The show ‘Go On’ could give the push in career for him since the last time he had tremendous success was in the sitcom ‘Friends’. Post ‘Friends’, the various sitcoms he acted never faired well, but his acting was well appreciated.
The pilot episode was great and this show is going to be a part of my daily dose of entertainment. Seriously, who would want to miss the old Chandler in a new avatar but with a sarcastic behavior and cynical views. Surely, it is going to be an enjoyable show.
Chandler was one of the most sarcastic characters in TV history. Not sure what you're talking about.
Yeah, gotta agree with Devdog here, Chandler Bing is/was one of the most negative and cynical characters to ever be on a sitcom.
