I liked it, it's a pilot so I'll cut it some slack. I also, didn't like the precocious kid. The way they make this show is really unique. So I'll give it a couple more viewings.
The show was created by Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham, who are veterans of the Upright Citizens Brigade. The method St. Clair and Parham use to write the show is genuinely fascinating, and it seems like the sort of thing that could work to produce a truly great TV series (if not quite this one). The two record themselves improvising the scenes that will be required in the story, filling in dialogue for all of the characters. They then transcribe that improvisation, then whittle it down into shorter scenes that consist of just the best jokes. This means that even at its worst, the series’ dialogue boasts a lived-in quality that most comedies don’t have.

This is the show I was referring to in the Bent thread. Wow, this show was boring. I will likely cancel my SP. (I know, I said likely, even though it's bad.. I still like to 'bank up' things for the summer.. Though I should just go back to netflix.)
Even "The B in apartment 27" or whatever (free on Amazon) was far better.
I thought the only part of the show that was funny was the little girl. The opening scene was them trying to be funny and failing hard. It got a little better but compared to a show like bent it is inferior.
Best Friends Forever does not appear to be forever, as NBC has pulled the freshman comedy from its line-up effective immediately, after four airings.
“BFF Fans: Wanted to let you know that our show is being taken off the air until the summer,” series star and executive producer Lennon Parhmam said via Twitter on Friday. “Hoping to post ep 5 & 6 online asap…. Jessica St. Clair and I CANNOT thank you enough for the love and support of our little show. You guys are truly the best.”
Best Friends Forever starred Parham and St. Clair (who also serves as an EP) as gal pals who had been displaced to opposite sides of the country until a divorce reunited them in Brooklyn, even in the apartment they used to share. The series drew 3.9 million total viewers and a 1.2 rating with its April 4 debut, but most recently mustered just 2.65 mil and a 0.8.
According to NBC’s press site, a second weekly helping of the hidden camera prank show Betty White’s Off Their Rockers will fill the Wednesdays-at-8:30 void, at least for the short term.
