    Pauley Perrette's new sitcom (Broke) premiered this week. Despite the usual stiff acting of episode 1 of a new series, I enjoyed it and will keep watching. What do you think?

    I’m out. Didn’t like the set up. Didn’t like the characters. Didn’t even snicker once.

    Oddly, it is on opposite a similar sit com.

    I thought I would try it out - and was surprised I liked it. I'll watch again. I was not a fan of Indebted - I watched the first episode and was out.

    I didn't laugh once, the characters are annoying and it's so cliche. Typical, rich get knocked down to poor status and how they deal. It's a ripoff of the MUCH MUCH MUCH better Schitt's Creek. Terrible dreck.

    Just looking at the promos made me not want to see this show. By the way, I've started watching Schitt's Creek on Netflix and I'm not very impressed with that either, despite all the good reviews I've read about it.

    I know it's a bit hypocritical of me to say this, but stick with it as it gets better (I've always said, if a show doesn't grab me early, I'm usually out....in this case, even though it didn't grab me right away, I did see potential where it could get better). Once the characters are better defined it gets more interesting. At first they all just seem like stuck up rich snobs, and yes there's a lot of that, but there's more to these characters than just that.

    Hated it also, and the actor playing her brother in law is basically playing same snobbish character he played on Jane The Virgin, and I couldn't stand the actor on that either.
