    Yawn. Don't remember laughing at all. Sat through it because I hope it succeeds. IMO, so pathetic it can only get better?

    I'll give it a couple more weeks to see if they can work out the kinks.

    Got this email from my mid-20s son. He's watched from the beginning, and was the one who got me watching. He is the demo they measure and love...
    He is too young to remember D&G as one of Chuck Lorre's show. But he did remember that JE had been on years ago. He also knows I hang around "TV forums", that's what he was referring to "is anyone talking about..."

    This show is in serious danger of quickly losing its target (and used-to-be loyal) audience.

    If they are going to have him be some young internet billionaire who made a ton of money selling some software, then at least show us glimpses of his "brilliance" to make it beleivable.

    Yeah ... if a nerd creates an application which attracts $1.3 billion from Microsoft, wouldn't the nerd still be the obsessed computer geek? Wouldn't he be obsessing about writing other programs or constantly be in front of his computer(s)? Would he really turn into a lazy slacker with no laptop attached to his hands? This character is the anti-technology nerd. :confused:

    WE got about 10 minutes into the show and deleted it and the season pass. The show really sucked.

    It's now been pointed out that Ashton has stock in many of them so they will be obscured in future showings.

    I would say your son is taking continuity in a comedy too seriously.

    He's going to be disappointed if he watches ANY long running show, as they ALL reuse actors in different roles.

    I'm not trying to completely defend it, but I think show's are a lot more reticent about doing this than they were in the past. Lots of old (60s, and no I didn't see them the first time around) shows would reuse actors for non-recurring characters a lot. (I can only think of two examples, and AFAIR, they were only used once.. Mark Lenard was on "Star Trek" at least once before he played Sarek... and 70s, Harry Morgan was on M*A*S*H before he played his most famous character whose name I can't remember at the moment..

    As a counterexample, what about Sean Fanning?

    Not what he meant.

    Before Harry Morgan played Colonel Potter, he played a visiting Major General Bartford (totally different character) in one episode of MASH.

    I'm in the camp of maybe one more episode and SP deleted. I can completely see this one building up on my DVR because I just don't care to watch it.

    With Berta being a live-in now, are they going to continue with her verbal thought bubbles? That in itself is enough to kill it for me. That was just stupid. The scene at the end on the balcony - not one thing funny about that whatsoever.

    I never watched That 70's Show, so I have no idea about the Kelso character, but this is just painful to watch. And that's not to say I would rather have seen Sheen back. It's pretty much to say it should have ended when he flamed out.

    I just signed up for Showtime again last night for Dexter and Homeland, so between those, a movie here and there I probably would not have recorded otherwise, and all the shows new & old I'm watching, I'd be surprised if I ever get around to watching another ep of this and will likely delete any eps recorded to free up space.

    I hate to say it since I've been with them since the beginning, but I've ceased to find it that funny, and so far this season I don't think they're going in the right direction, the SP is on life support.

    Sean Fanning.. co-founder of Napster. But I just checked, and I used the wrong example.

    I meant Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake played him in "The Social Network"). He's been involved in several big techy things (Napster, Facebook, etc.), but is not a "sit at his computer all the time" kind of person.
