    From the previews I thought this might have promise. I like Jane Curtin but I didn't find many laughs here. Maybe it was supposed to be a dark comedy or a dramedy, but, for me the comedy nor the drama really got off the ground.

    I couldn't make it past when Fred Savage was sitting on the bed with his lover.
    The laugh track was killing me.

    Being a pilot episode, It wasn't bad. Will give it a little time to find itself.

    I liked it much better than 4 Kings. I'll give it another try, which is more than I'm giving Kings.

    I have it, but not sure if I want to watch it...after all, it will conflict with CSI (last night's CSI was a rerun). Oh, wait. I forgot we're getting a new tivo to get rid of these conflicts! So yes, I will watch it! WOOHOO!

    I watched it. It made me smile but I wasn't bowled over. I'll give it another go.

    It wasn't bad, but nothing really grabbed me. I'm going to give this one a pass.

    I couldn't make it past the opening scene. Maybe 60 seconds before I hit delete? :thumbsdown:

    If it got funny, I'll never know. But it didn't start that way, IMHO.

    I missed the first four minutes due to a TiVo crash. When I started, they were picking up Jane's character from the looney bin. What happened prior to that?

    I liked this episode a lot more than I thought I would. For me it had a LOT more laughs than Four Kings. I'll be tuning in again.

    I also thought the laugh track was way too intrusive. I also had expected it to be a little like AD (but AD has no laugh track). Couldn't get beyond the first 10 minutes. AD may have ruined me for comedy.

    You could tell this was the pilot. Fred Savage was breaking character in alot of shots when he wasn't the main focus at that time. And as many others have said, the laugh track was terrible! You would think they would have re-shot the pilot once it was picked up as a series.

    It made me laugh. That's all I really need from a sitcom. I'll watch it again.
