I have to disagree with this, too. His acting on The West Wing was very well received as I recall.
Why, Mrs. Perry! Welcome to Tivo Community Forum.
Pilot is being rebroadcast tonight on NBC.
I watched this last night and really, really enjoyed it. But then I tried to set a SP for it and couldn't, since there are no upcoming episodes. Color me confused. When does it actually start? And why did they re-run the pilot now if it's not starting anytime soon?
You should be able to do a wish list and get it that way. Just as good as good.
And by the way, I really enjoyed the show.
I read about this here and watched it last night. I thought it was quite good. I'll tune in next month, for sure.
Not just as good. I tried an autorecord title wishlist and it was bringing in random episodes of other shows that had episode titles including the phrase "go on." I think I could have added a "Matthew Perry" term and that would have solved the problem, but I became frustrated and gave up. Definitely not as easy as a SP.
Your are correct. Forgot about that little issue of wish lists sometimes including other things, sorry.
Eh, no worries. A minor inconvenience at worst. I just have to remember to create the SP in September.
Put a sticky note on the wall next to the TV between the kitchen and the living room.
I believe the pilot will re-air *again* in September.
The AVclub review agrees with me:
Yet the show is also stuffed with serious problems, problems that would fell just about any other show. For one thing, it never takes any time to do the stuff it wants to do. It has tonal whiplash problems, but ones that would be manageable if it didnt feel the need to zip past every slightly poignant moment in favor of wacky jokes. Theres a part of the pilot in which Ryan is speaking with Owen (a very good Tyler James Williams) as part of an exercise designed to see what the two have in common. The scene needs to set up a lot of things, and the script (by former Friends writer Scott Silveri) blitzes past all of these things at lightning speed. By the time it ends up at its supposedly cathartic conclusion, the show has to move on to the next thing, lest it spend too long letting us contemplate just how deeply scarred these people have been by their experiences. At all times, Go On feels massaged to death, as if any rough edges were removed in favor of making everything as smooth and palatable as possible. Worried the pilots tone might stray too close to emotional realism? Dont worry! Heres some faux-charming, will-they/wont-they banter to tide you over!
For me, I found it funny. All the stuff above? Meh. I laughed. Out load. Worth watching again for me, regardless of what some critics think. All I need is a certain n umber of like minded folks and the show gets renewed. However, it really is to early to know if it will be any good over a number of episodes, but the first 30 mins were fun.
Wait, if you already have the episode on your Tivo, you should be able to
1) enter the episode
2) go to the 'more options' screen
3) create a SP then and there
it doesn't matter if there are upcoming episodes in the guide
I tried that first and the option was not available. I was surprised because it is usually the easiest way. But there were no SP options available. I was thinking that maybe since it was an early/promo pilot showing it wasn't coded as a series that could be SPd. It did give me the option to create a wishlist.
I "love" how diverse the support group is. Looks like the producers tried hard to please everybody. All that's missing is a gay character, it seems.
Just wait until the "very special episode" where one of them comes out. Then all the bases will be covered.
i thought the violent lady talked about her girlfriend?
Yes, you're right. The one lady was a lesbian. Maybe DUDE_NJX is using the term "gay" to refer only to guys.
