    Does Mayim think that hers is the first show to receive less than 100% favorable reviews?

    I doubt that she even thinks that this is her first show to receive less than 100% favorable reviews.

    I watched the first two episodes and I thought the first one was pretty bad.
    I thought that Bialik was trying way too hard and it showed.

    The second episode was a little better in the previously mentioned "house on fire" sense.

    While I suspect that Fox will give this a longer leash due to both Jim Parsons and Bialik being executive producers here, I may not be sticking around.

    I'm really only giving it a shot because I have nothing else to watch on Thursday evenings. I'm not finding it very funny for a sitcom but maybe it'll get better.

    Tried to skip thread so I could post this (though saw glimpses of some that seem to agree with me)..

    This show is NOT VERY GOOD.

    Definitely I started watching because of the star (though really I don't remember watching her on other shows before BBT.. yes I know she was a star of a show as a teenager and has been in other stuff.. and has IIRC a doctorate)..

    I've only seen two of the eps so far, and will probably still keep watching (for some reason I watched all of the eps of the previous show the short guy on this show was in), at least for a while.

    It's just not very funny.

    Though strangely, I actually DID chuckle a little bit at the *very overexaggerated* physical humor in the eps I've seen.. and I don't even really like physical humor for the most part.

    I do like the "her character breaking the 4th wall", and the weird play-like everybody doing a bow/wave at the end of the ep.. it almost seems like padding and they ran out of story or something.

    Edit: I like the imaginary French woman too.

    I guess I know Cheyenne Jackson from 30 rock. He seemed so familiar but that's the only imdb credit that jumps out.

    I thought tonight's episode (the vacation) was good. Funny lines, and they're getting a feel for the characters personalities (writers & actors both). The whiskey scenes were funny.

    I'll assume that wasn't really crab she was knoshing on.

    Her using the crab legs to push the hair behind her ears was funny. I think it's getting better. Not must watch but if there's nothing else on then ok.

    Thursday is my busiest TV night and this show just isn't worth the time that I don't have to begin with. I just deleted OnePasses for it and Last Man Standing. I enjoyed the LMS season premier where he did the crossover from his old series Home Improvement and had his old character visit his new character, but that was clearly a one week gimmick and most the rest of the time LMS is just boring.

    I’m only watching LMS now as it’s the final season.
    (...might also be for Call Me Kat ;))

    This season of LMS feels forced.

    This show is starting to grow on me. For some reason I enjoy waving at the end.

    Just get rid of the mother.

    I wish they would do the end-waves like Miranda does it - they put the actor's names on them as they are waving. It is a small difference, but I think it looks cool when the actors are identified.

    As a side note, Amazon Prime has the first season of Miranda if anyone wanted to compare the two series.

    Miranda Hart is just better at the whole thing!

    Miranda should be better at playing Miranda. Makes sense.
