    [Housekeeping note: It's clear there won't be any threads for this show unless someone creates a Season Thread. It's been three days since the Pilot. So with apologies to those who don't like them.]

    I liked this. It's rare to like a sitcom pilot, they usually take a few eps to catch on, to gell. But the writers spent maybe one segment with setup, then it's off to the races. (It is a fairly simple concept--fish out of water.)

    The two leads are great, really like the daughter. Cheryl Hines is good. Please don't make the suburbanites too cartoony, I could see that becoming tiresome.

    SP survives.

    It took 5 minutes to give up on this show.

    I liked it also. I like Jeremy Sisto, Alan Tudyk, and Rex Lee so that made setting up a season pass an easy decision.

    Actually - of all the new comedy shows that I have seen so far this fall season -
    THIS has been my favorite.

    Sisto really annoyed me on L&O - so was surprised to see how much I liked him.

    I think it's a great cast great writing - and thankfully no canned laughter.

    :up:

    Surprising there was no thread. It's been given a lot of positive comments in other sitcom threads.

    I think it shows promise.

    We liked it so far.

    Cheryl Hines was on Chelsea Lately the other night and her TV daughter was in the audience. Chelsea said "That's not your real daughter. You can't take her everywhere!"

    Cheryl also called Jeremy Sisto a DILF.

    Thought it was good too. For some weird reason I find the girl reminds me of Reese Witherspoon.

    I didn't like the first episode at first. By the end I was liking it. I've read some reviews that were pretty positive. So, I'll give the show a chance for sure.

    She kind of reminded me of Emma Stone in Easy A. The actress was very good.

    Looks like it is a fun show and is definitely a season pass for me.

    I kinda liked it, it will be interesting to see where it goes.

    One thing I noticed right away is that it is filmed in LA and not NY.

    :confused: I like this show and Free Agents. Hope both of them make it.

    I liked it, except for Cheryl Hines. She annoys me so much.
    When she wasn't on-screen I was enjoying it, so I will stick with it.

    I liked it enough to give the 2nd episode a chance. After that, we'll see...

    Did not like it that much, but I'm giving it a chance. I enjoyed some of the concepts, but something was off in the tone/execution. I think the narration perhaps is not a good idea for this show.

    I thought it was pretty good for a pilot. I might get tired of it eventually, but for now, it's a keeper.

    Sometimes shows can be fun and satisfying, and yet people feel they don't have much to say about them.

    So I can understand why there are a lack of threads about any show, no matter how good or bad.
