    [I know some of you don't like these season threads, but with no one creating episode threads, we need a place to talk. Thanks for understanding.]

    I like this show, it's one of the few sitcom keepers from this year's batch. Some general thoughts...

    I don't understand why Max doesn't jump all over Caroline's cupcake ideas. Max is tired of her sh*tty life; she comments on it all the time. Yet every time Caroline comes up with an idea for making money, Max runs away. Is this going to be one of their ongoing themes--Max really doesn't want to improve? If so, that's kinda depressing.

    What's with the horse? They can't afford it, and I don't care how attached Caroline is to him. They talk about ten dollars being a big deal, yet they keep a horse that costs far more. It's jarring.

    Something that hit me watching this week's episode (cake decorating class). With most sitcoms, the longer you watch, the more the characters feel like family. You get to know their foibles. The writers get a feel for them, and it all starts to rock & roll. This is why you have to give sitcoms a few episodes, and not delete the SP after the pilot. With this show, I'm *not* getting that feeling. It's still funny, but I don't get that warm fuzzy I get from watching most sitcoms. Maybe it's taking the writers longer to get a feel for the characters, or they just don't know where they want to go with it. Or maybe it's just me.:eek:

    I know, I've done nothing but complain in this first post. Yet I really do like this show, and want to see it get better and stick around.

    It does appear there is a thread for every episode except this week's.

    Anyway... I have a general question for this show. At the end of every episode, they show a dollar amount, you hear a cha ching and then there is a new dollar amount. Anyone know what this means? Maybe I just missed something from the first episode.

    You missed it from the first episode. The amount reflects the seed money they would need to get their cupcake business off the ground in earnest. I think the total Caroline came up with in the first episode was $250K.

    Yeah.. An considering this week's episode aired within the past day, then it makes sense there was not yet one. One could have been easily created.

    The jokes are a bit forced on this show but at least they are funny. I am amazed at how "adult" the jokes are. This is definitely not a family show.

    I can't stand the owner of the cafe. I wish they would just get rid of him. Maybe they will just dump the cafe after this season and the girls can get a new job next year.

    Loved the vagina bed! lol

    I love Han!

    Ditch the horse and I'd be happy.

    My favorite new show of the season.

    Oleg normally annoys me but this line actually made me laugh.

    I think the sole purpose of this show is to push the crude envelope for the sake of doing so.
    I quit counting the word vagina after the 3rd or 4th time. It's getting closer to being a deleted season pass for me.

    Whitney Cummings is a co-creator or writer or something. I just watched her recent appearance on David Letterman. I think she said vagina about 20 times during the interview. The last thing said was Dave asking her why she smelled so good. She said it was her vagina. :)

    Yea, her comedy style is pretty evident in this show. She was on a show on Showtime called "Dave's Old Porn" a week or so ago watching and discussing porn from the 70's. She's not exactly the prudish, family friendly type.

    Whitney Cummings is like nails on a chalkboard and is incredibly full of herself.

    I'm still loving the show, and I love the horse. But this week I really hated the Jersey girls. Hope they are never in another ep.

    I should have explained it better. The pilot had a thread started the same night. Then no thread for #2 & #3. #4 had one the same night, #5 was the next day, #6 was started three days later and only had eight posts. It was hit & miss, and rather clear there would be no sustained long discussions in each thread. Reply trend was 60-0-0-39-41-7.

    A concern is that people won't know "when" to join in, or how far to read, since a season thread can cross episodes. But with the exception of the pilot, not a single post was made more than four days after the show aired. Maybe people read it at a later date, but they sure didn't contribute. And if you look at the Pilot thread, people started posting about episode #2 towards the end of it. They needed a place to talk!:D

    (Yes, I actually researched all this *before* I created this thread. I just wanted a place to vent about this show, and that started me looking for threads.)

    It's a light comedy, with not much in the way of spoilers, and a perfect candidate for a season thread. Gives us a place to keep the talk going.

    It doesn't matter to me whether there is an episode thread or a series thread, but...

    It only makes sense that a thread does not always get started the same day the show airs. After all, this IS a TiVo forum, so assuming everyone came here originally because they had a DVR, they may not be watching the same day the episode airs.

    I think Astrohip is trying to set the record for most 'Season' threads started by one poster.
