    I'm starting this thread just so I can say Kelly Hu has an awesome stomach.

    Everything else was.. meh... but as long as Kelly works in the massage parlor, I'm tuning in.

    We were discussing whether or not to continue watching this show after seeing this episode. I figured it's not going to be around much longer so we might as well just watch what they show.

    I agree but I'll still watch Kelly. The basic problem is a terminally weak premise. Plus the similarity to the class is more than noticeable.

    Kelly Hu + massage parlor costumes + High Defintion = quite watchable despite the show being not that good.

    That's great for you guys, but there's no eye candy for the women and gay men who watch this show. We have to enjoy it on the comedy alone. :-|

    I thought the rest of Kelly Hu was pretty awesome too.

    Doesn't this remind anybody of "Mind of the Married Man"? Just the fact that she does the stereotypical Asian accent and it's all an act.

    When the woman did it on "Mind of the Married Man", it actually surprised me. I didn't realize it was an act (from the character's point of view) up until then.

    My interest in this goes down each week. Somebody above mentioned the phrase "weak premise." I think they've nailed it!

    Too bad, too. I really like some of the actors in it, plus Ms. Hu and the doctor aren't hard to look at.

    I still get somewhat of a Friends vibe from this show.
    Silverman is Ross.
    Hu is Rachel who works at Phoebe's massage parlour.
    Germann is Joey.
    Arquette is Chandler.
    Loughlin is Monica (I predict that she'll be shown as more neurotic as the series progresses).

    I've tried to stick with it, but Silverman just annoys me. His comic timing and delivery is so predictable and he seems like he's just a grown up version of his character in Brighton Beach Memoirs. He kills the comedy in every scene he's a part of.

    Kelly and Lori definitely are the only reasons for watching. Much like Sofia Vergara in Knights of Prosperity, although that show is a bit funnier than ICoE.
