    I enjoyed the pilot, but the second was a bore. I will give it another week to see if boring is the trend.

    I totally agree. Seemed like they were trying too hard in the second episode.

    I really liked the pilot, but the second episode was just not funny. I'm not sure I'll keep watching if future episodes are like this one.

    Yeah, the second ep was a big bag of suck. And after such a promising beginning! Hopefully things will get back on track.

    You can probably catch the pilot on NBC.com

    I didn't think it was that bad. It was certainly a lot better than Men With Kids. That was so bad that I'm not even going to give it a second chance. The same for Animal Practice.

    I didn't even give either of those a first chance.

    I finally got a chance to watch both the Pilot ep and Ep02 yesterday.

    The Pilot ep was awesome! Really really loved it.

    Ep02 was still good to me but, like others here, I loved the Pilot much more.

    I'm not sure if I will always see Chandler Bing, when I see Matthew Perry, but this character IS coming through for me and I really love him.

    I thought the pilot was very funny. Episode 2, not as much. Still got an SP set though.

    Finally used OD to watch EP 2. I made it maybe 10 minutes into it before I got up and started surfing the web for more interesting things.

    I fell asleep about 10 minutes in.

    I enjoyed the first episode, but what I saw of the 2nd was just below meh.

    Haven't deleted the SP yet, I'll give it another chance.

    I'm giving it one more shot, but I fear this show will be yet another MP show that dies a fairly early death.

    Fot those that care, you may want to check your SP for tonight's episode . I noticed that mine recorded two episodes last week, one with the episode title for Ep 2, and one with the episode title for Ep. 3. Both recordings were of Ep. 2, but depending on your TiVo/DVR settings, your recording may think it already recorded Ep. 3.

    No problems here, Ep 3 recorded without a hitch.

    And I thought it was funny. Good episode.

    In all three episodes I've been mildly amused for most of it. I have rarely cringed in horror. And about twice each episode I've had a good deep laugh.

    Though it won't qualify for 'Comedy of the Year', it is decent enough to keep watching.

    I don't think anyone "cringed in horror". I just didn't find much to laugh at in episode 2. Episode 3 was much better.

    What I mean by that statement is that there are some sitcoms that you watch and simply cringe with how horrible the attempt at comedy is. I watched like 5 minutes of that Guys with Kids show and cringed at least once. I haven't really cringed while watching Go On, so I see that as a positive in today's sitcom climate.

    Third episode was amusing but WEIRD.

    The scene near the beginning, coming up with DEDWYF license plates, was hilarious.

    And we need a Season Thread before we get in trouble here... :)
