    They do this in the USA, at least on some shows, but always at the beginning of the show (Brooklyn Nine-Nine comes to mind). Most shows just show the stars' names as captions at the start, presumably to give more time to the story. I don't know if showing the stars' names in the credits at the start is just traditional or some SAG/AFTRA requirement.

    Anyone make it through the whole season? We did but it's such a weird show. I wanted to like it. It's just so goofy and cringy in so many parts.

    I did. It grew on me, going from "it's okay" to the point I actually enjoyed it. Like so many sitcoms, it took a while for the actors & writers to find the characters voices.

    Phil (Leslie Jordan) and Randi (Kyla Pratt) made the show, without them it's probably not worth keeping.

    It got better when they didn’t try to follow the exact path Miranda followed. The base strokes are there. The triangle mostly but the stories wound up being their own. They also toned down the 4th wall stuff. Concentrated more on the story.

    It was OK. I ended up not hating it as much as I thought I would - the first couple of episodes were rough, but I tolerated it enough to make it through. Not something I'd watch normally, but it happened on a day when nothing else was being recorded, so I had nothing else to lose recording it and putting it on.

    I don't really care either way if it gets renewed or cancelled, and I don't regret watching it. I laughed a few times, but that's about it. The story got better, but overall a "meh" from me.

    Despite being a fun show the surrounding cast is horrible. Even Leslie Jordan comes across as a weak #2.

    I agree. I don't care if it's renewed or canceled. If they renew there better be major retooling or the show will be short lived.

    I have continued to watch and will resume watching if there is a season two. Yeah, it's a bit weird but then so am I so I'm not repelled by that.

    This is petty as hell, but I'll go ahead and say it - Kat, please get a new hairdo! I just hate that and it could look nicer and still be quirky.
