One Big Happy

I can't find any threads on this show so I have to start one to say how much I hate it. Stupid, I know, but this is a forum right?

Cuthbert was very likeable in Happy Endings and at least 'lookable' in many other things she has done. But this series is a disaster. Ellen Degeneres has her name on it as producer, or something, but that doesn't help.

Painfully unfunny. I know. Shut it off. I have.

I have to agree. I was very disappointed in this show.

I wanted to love this show but I had to force myself to finish the first ep...then cancelled the SP within the first few minutes of ep 2. Bummer.

I've watched the first couple and have enjoyed it. I think maybe my judgment is clouded by Kelly Brook.

Kelly Brook?

To me, Elisha Cuthbert's Lizzy is a far, far prettier and sexier woman than Kelly Brook's Prudence... even when Cuthbert is trying to play up her "butch" role.

Sure, Kelly Brook could shelter a family of five in a down pour with those breasts, but I think she looks overly made-up, and I find her voice mildly irksome.

Yeah, I know, these are shallow considerations. But the show isn't great TV. It's not even good TV. So I find myself checkin' out the women. What can I say, I'm a product of my testosterone.

Not quite. Perhaps Reubenesque.

I think Reubenesque is a nice way to say chubby. Or, fat.

I'm with you. Generally I'm not attracted to her type, but I don't think she's fat in the same way that Marilyn Monroe was not fat.

I find the show mildly amusing. Sticking with it for now.

Come on. That girl is not fat.

The show was trying too hard in the first episode. The second one was slightly better, but it's still not very good. I think I'll probably dump it.

I watched about 5 minutes of this show before wiping it from my life.

I'd say not terrible, but I won't care when it gets cancelled.. Still worth Tivoing for now.

Many other far better sitcoms have been cancelled in recent years on this and other networks.. (e.g. happy endings, mentioned in the thread)

Call me shallow. Call me superficial. Call me awestruck. But I like this show. It's not Frasier level humor, but it's funny, and good god am I mesmerized.

The scene where {I have no idea what her name is} walks into the hospital room wearing a wingsuit, was the first scene I can recall where she wasn't displaying the grand canyon.

I'm not so unrefined as to watch a show solely because of (.)(.), but with just enough humor, I can be persuaded.

I also like the bowling alley guy. He reminds me of a character that was on Sean Saves The World.

It's like nails on a chalkboard. I had been recording it in SD. I thought that HD would make a difference.

It doesn't. I can't watch it again.

I only kept the pilot in my Pilot folder because of Cuthbert. But after watching it, deleted it and the rest and the SP.

The only 1/2 hour sitcom I've watched regularly in the past few years has been Ground Floor. And thats because I had an entire season recorded and binged it one time when I was sick.

Kelly Brook looks frumpy in this, other sources of photos, not so. I'd hit it.

I have to ask. You clearly do not like sitcoms. Why would you try them?

I can't help but notice that Kelly Brook has some large breasts.

I have a wish list setup with "Pilot" in the title to get as many new shows as I can. I saw it come in saw Elisha in the credits so set up a SP.

Add "premiere" as an alternate keyword. I catch lots of shows with this autorecording wishlist.. (and yeah, I have to cull out things about airline pilots!)
