Just saw the pilot as I'm trying to give all the new shows at least one watch. I'm not sure why I went in with such low expectations. I don't remember a bad review or anything that would lead me to not expecting it to be good. Maybe a subliminal John and Kate plus eight connection.
Anyway I loved it. Kate has a very adorkable quality like The New Girl. Ben gives me a young Steve Carell feel. The little girl was great as well. I didn't see any threads on it so I thought maybe others overlooked it like I almost did. The first two episodes are still on free Hulu. I haven't watched the 2nd yet, but the pilot is definitely worth a look.
