    I liked it. I'm surprised, but pleasantly so.

    It's a little weird that the ENTIRE cast is known faces, including the doorman (whatshisface from DS9).

    But I'm keeping the SP. :up:

    I will keep it for now. It was kind of quirky.

    I liked it too.

    She reminds me of Rachel from Friends, kind of ditzy.

    It is staying on my SP.

    Yep, a pleasant surprise. Jean Smart always manages to be funny, glad to see her on TV again.

    And yes, it was a little weird that every actor was "hey, where did I see her/him before?". Goes great with the memory loss story though. ;)

    I've been meaning to look for this show because it looked really cute. (It would have been nice to have the "Thumbs up to record" feature on it!) I just keep forgetting to do a search!

    What? really? I thought it sucked big time. I was looking forward to it and thought I would love it. I didn't laughed once. I expected more from CHristina Applegate. Good to see she's got some meat on her.

    Why it was little Samantha Who, a program for viewers with an IQ of no more than two!

    Yeah, thanks. I watched at like 5 in the morning, so I was a little ... fuzzy. :D

    And it appeared as though he was playing the same character, too. :)

    I dunno how long they can sustain the premise, especially when she starts remembering things (as she already did in the pilot). But I love Christina Applegate. :D

    :thumbsdown:

    I was SO happy ABC did stood by their standards and applied the cliche pizzicato strings throughout the show to indicate it was funny. I might not have realized otherwise.

    What a shame. Lots of good talent going to waste on a truly worthless show.

    But, for those who enjoyed it, I hope it lasts for your sakes. At least it's scripted and not a reality/game show!

    So what happened after she got back to her parents house? My recording cut out there, obviously I have to pad it.

    Put me in the "wow I could be watching something better" crowd. I tried,but the annoying mom and the generally annoying everything turned me off. Which sucks because I wanted to like it.

    Mine did too. I forgot that I meant to ask. Mine cut out right as Mom answered the door.

    Wow. We have some really tough critics on this forum. :)

    I just wanted to watch something funny. I might be bored with it by next week... but this week I laughed. I thought it was funny. :)

    Man, I'd love to lick that meat.

    I'm sorry, where was I?
    I totally forgot to check the show out.

    Jennifer Esposito was way too stressed out. I canceled my SP because she was too high strung.

    I tried. 5 times. The damn thing just keeps stuttering and hanging on playback. When will companies discover that streaming media sucketh.
