    I didn't know anything about this going in, but I really enjoyed it. I found it funny, and I was suprised with the innuendo and thought it was pretty adult humor at times ( which is good).
    Reminded me of Fastlane, so it's sure to be cancelled early.

    I was glad to see Bret Harrison back in something.

    It was alright. I'll give it another go. Nice to see Michael Rosenbaum in something again after Smallville.

    I enjoyed it, for the most part.

    I liked Christian Slater's "I'll allow it" when somebody complained to him about somebody else.

    The girl playing Melanie is great eye candy. Wow. IMDB says she's the girl everybody was trying to find and rescue in "Cloverfield". Yeah, I remember thinking "wow" when seeing her in that, too.

    The guy with the floppy hair kinda reminds me of Dwight from The Office.

    Remember they filmed this over a year ago then decided to put Running Wilde on the fall line up instead of this. Can't wait to see what's changed since then! I so adore Christian Slater that he can do no wrong in my eyes so I will attempt (and more than likely fail) to be fair when watching episodes and arguing with you all about how awesome they are. :D

    I never even noticed him. What role did he play?


    ETA - oh, was he the boyfriend in the yellow SUV? Wow - didn't recognize him at all.

    She was also the love interest in the series October Road.

    Melanie was also "Annie", Tommy's new squeeze he brought back from Seattle with him on "Brothers and Sisters".

    Really enjoyed it. Some great lines last night.

    I've always been a fan of Christian Slater. I hope this is successful for him as I loved My Own Worst Enemy.

    Disappointed in the role Michael Rosenbaum played. The only other thing I've ever seen him in is Smallville. His Lex Luthor is the only reason I managed to watch more than the first season. I hope there is more to his character.

    No she wasn't. She was the nurse that Justin dated for a while (who may have been named Annie - I don't remember).

    I was not blown away by this. Basically they are trying to capitalize on Leverage and Hustle to a degree, but without the crafted skill in either show. It should be a one-hour drama(dy) and not a sitcom if it's to stand a chance.

    I'll give it one or two more episodes before I completely rule it out - but only because I love the aforementioned shows (especially Hustle).

    I recognized him right away, but even after several hints, my wife had no idea who it was. When I finally told her, she said, "Yeah, I'd never have figured that out. He looks so different with hair."

    The script seems a bit forced, but the actors are interesting enough to give it another try.

    oh, not pizza girl.. that's who I thought you meant at first.. had to go look it up on imdb. I guess she was the girl that the main guy came back to town for?

    (I liked October Road, but watched it mostly because of Hot Donna originally..)

    No, when he taught the class at the local college she was one of his students and he started dating her.

    What a bunch of crap. I love this show but would NEVER watch a minute of American Idol.

    And we all know Fox doesn't hesitate to pull the plug on shows without giving it a real shot. I hope they prove me wrong on this one and give it some time to catch on!
