    No thread on this show yet? Am I missing something?

    I loved it! This is my current favorite new show. :up:

    Really? I couldn't finish watching it. I won't be watching any more of this one.

    Totally forgot they'd recast the role of the father with Scott Patterson and deleted my recording since I'd already seen the preair. Hopefully the reshot pilot isn't as racially insensitive as the first one.

    It was pretty much word for word nothing changed. Hated Patterson in it though it was like he was doing an impression of the original dad and that guy was good by himself.

    Only the scenes with dad were reshot and the only other difference that I'm aware of was the gun in the mouth scene. This pilot didn't show it, but it was still in the voice over when he introduces the twins.

    I liked it.
    I like anything that isn't the typical safe, vanilla BS that networks churn out.
    A new SP worth saving.

    Another good new series. SP worthy, as Elaine would say.

    After the first half, I was ready to delete the season pass. After watching the whole episode, it's worth another look for me. We'll see what happens next week.

    My friends and I were rolling during that scene, still I know why they had to cut it out of the broadcast one.

    I'm getting the feeling that this show will make people feel uncomfortable on some many different Levels. None of which I fell comfortable about going in too. :eek:

    But this sitcom is worthy of another week or two of SP space. I'm not a big sitcom guy so that's saying a lot

    That's what could make this a good show - showing those uncomfortable things, but doing them in a good way that, *gasp* makes you learn. If they ignore them, and just use them for crass humor, forget it.

    It wasn't as bad or inoffensive as I was expecting. It was a bit uplifting. Being on the CW, I don't think it's going to last.

    It was only okay to me. I will give it another couple of weeks to see how it goes. For now, it's on the bubble for me.

    I wanted to see this show but too many schedule conflicts. I don't want to see it that bad.

    In this day and age how can one run out of tuners to off-set schedule conflicts? :p

    HTPC with four turners, schedule conflicts are a thing of the past for me.;)

    You tape something at 11:30 on Friday? If not, Spike does the repeat, thats how I got around it since I tape Chuck and How I Met Your Mother on Mondays.
