    I can understand why no thread for this one yet. Might be my 2nd axed show of new season. I like Tim Daly, and the guy from Prison Break, but I don't know if enough to keep watching.

    I like all the actors, actually. But this episode was even worse than the Grey's Anatomy episode that served as its pilot. I'll keep up with it for a couple of weeks, but unless it shows significant improvement, it'll be gone from my Season Pass list quickly.

    This show has Tim Daly, and therefore was doomed before it started. Daly is the current Ted McGinley, as far as killing a show goes.

    I haven't watched this yet, but I watched the 2 parter Grey's anatomy that introduced these characters. It seemed like Ally MacBeal with Doctors instead of Lawyers. Is there overlap in writers and producers with Ally MacBeal?

    I wanted to like this. But it was a mish-mosh of writing and confused storylines.

    And there wasn't time to build any sort of relationship with the characters before they came on like strangers who want you to know far too much and get intimate far too quickly so you want to back away.

    I'll record it next week, and hope the writers get a little more centered and focused, and that they build something I want to connect to.

    My wife was so excited about this show since she loves Grey's so much. She wasn't disappointed...I felt...meh. So far, not doing it for me. I'll watch a few more for her sake.

    Like most pilot's, they are trying to establish the characters. Hopefully, the future episodes will by more focused.

    Good to see Amy Brenneman in a show again.

    Haven't watched it yet, and not a Grey's fan...but I'm going to watch it to see her again. I miss Judging Amy. :(

    I found it much better than the introductory Grey's Anatomy episode... at least until the end when Addison couldn't shut up in the conference room.

    It's another show on my blah list. I'll probably keep it around while Chris Lowell gets some reasonable amount of screen time and while I'm otherwise unoccupied with anything productive to do or interesting to watch.

    Brenneman was the only really good part of this episode.

    It's number 3 in priority on Wednesday (behind Bionic Woman and Gossip Girl, maybe?) so I didn't get it TiVo'd. I wasn't terribly disappointed because if the "teaser" last spring was any indication I figured it wouldn't be around long...

    I did want to at least see an ep or two because I think Addison is quite attractive, but such is life...

    I enjoyed it more than the Grey's episode that introduced the characters, so I'm willing to give it a couple more weeks. Moon Zappa was great as the woman counting tiles. Too bad it was probably a one shot part.

    I know they replaced the actress who plays Addison's best friend. I thought for sure it was a different actor playing Dell as well. He looked very different. Imdb proved me wrong.

    It's just as bad as Grey's has become, but I'm not sick of all the characters yet so I guess I'll try to hang on for a bit.

    Apparently there is no HIPPA in their part of LA. Must be nice to practice medicine in a world where you can magically get anybody's kid's medical records in 5 minutes with no paperwork and no parental consent.

    If they added Nathan Fillian to the cast, they would be REALLY screwed.

    I didn't watch Grey's, and am finding it VERY hard to get interested in this show at ALL.
