    Maybe she just can't remember?

    Maybe that's why he changed it in the first place?

    Was E4 filmed after a COVID break? His daughter looked taller and older and Ted seemed to have more of a tan than previous episodes.

    Ted's tan was definitely distracting in E4. Wasn't sure if it was a real tan or just way too much makeup. Either way...

    The "Alexa" bit in the cold open of E4 would definitely have fit right in on "30 Rock" or "Incredible Kimmy Schmidt."

    In real life, L.A. government officials going to Sacramento would fly, period.

    I liked the music that was playing when the mayor was with Orly in the episode I watched last night (one left to watch). You'd think he'd have something more hip playing if he's trying to relate to his daughter in a way that embarrasses her.

    Finally found the show! I heard about it on some Ted Danson special and was interested.

    So the first thing that jumped out at me was thinking one of the regulars looked familiar. Where have I seen her before? Ohhh... she was the neighbor in Crazy Ex Girlfriend...

    Then one of the guest stars - from the stadium - she's familiar too... Oh right, she was the girlfriend in Crazy Ex Girlfriend...

    Funny (to me anyway). I don't think Tina Fey has any connection to Crazy Ex Girlfriend, does she?

    They did actually film in Dodger Stadium in episode 5 (not like there was a lot going on there when they shot this).

    Although some of the camera angles bothered me until I realized that they were trying not to show that they didn't have enough extras to portray a crowd in the stands.
    (Darn pandemic.)

    Sam Malone would have thrown that pitch harder.

    I think if you ask Jayden, that throw was plenty hard enough.

    You HAVE to have the man who played Sam Malone throw a pitch in a baseball game.

    I'd just like to know how they made it look so convincing without hurting Moynihan.

    When this show is bad, it’s really bad. Like that giant pancake eating stunt. I groan at these times and think I’m done with this show, and then something really makes me laugh. Helps to be high.

    Ted Danson is really the only thing worth seeing.

    Although it was really funny when his daughter thought he was having a stroke and called on the girl who helped him with the fake social media account.

    I watched the first two episodes and I think I'm out. There's just too much good TV on these days to waste my time with something so average.

    Same here. I'm not a sitcom guy to begin with, so it needs to be something special to hold me. And this...ain't.

    It's like 30 Rock lite. I'm still in but barely. I kept hearing how P&R and The Office took a year until it got good, maybe that's the case here and I gave up on both quickly. Ted Danson and a little bit of "funny" is keeping me here.

    The show just has been horrible for me.

    Keep hoping it gets better, but it's not.

    Me too. I am, however, a sitcom guy. "30 Rock" at least had Tina and Alec Baldwin bickering and the insanity of Tracy and the goody-goody Kenneth. And I like that music, which has shown up here too.

    I tried P&R when they did that special episode recently. Knope.,

    I never saw any clip from "The Office" that appealed to me, but some of the actors have shown up elsewhere. Steve Carell has played some great roles in movies, like "Dinner with Schmucks" which I saw over the weekend where he was a white, less intelligent and older Urkel. Jenna Fischer was mentioned on "SNL" and I liked her in "Splitting Up Together" with Oliver Hudson.

    I generally like good sitcoms. 30 Rock took awhile to get it's legs too, which I mentioned up thread and that's why I am still giving this one a bit more time. It's got Ted Danson who has a good pedigree (Cheers, The Good Place, even CYE), and Tina Fey is involved. We'll see.

    I thought The Office was solid right out of the gate, but I was already a fan of the original British version. P&R definitely took a while to get going, but it ultimately became one of the best sitcoms of all time. I suppose it's possible that Mr. Mayor will eventually become a great show too, I'm just not willing to invest the time in it right now.
