    I. Love. This. Show!

    It's a pilot episode, written and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino. I hope it gets picked up!

    Yes!! Superb writing and acting, although I thought Tony Shaloub's 'yiddish?' accent was in and out.

    Wife and I watched this over the weekend and loved it!! I was born just after this takes place, and while we weren't in the same class level as the family here, a lot of it rang true in my household. I haven't watched anything else by this writer, but I noticed a certain cadence in the dialogue, similar to the dialogue of an Aaron Sorkin show. Took a bit to get used to it, but it was all good.

    Thank you for posting about this. What a treat! I look forward to seeing how she and Susie will work together. Such opposite outlooks.

    No way it won't, I'd say. Putting it in their "let customers vote" contest thing is just theater. The pilot is really good, AS-P is a big name, and it's a chance for Amazon to poach her from their rival, Netflix, who wants her there to make more Gilmore Girls.

    Is there any idea as to when the determination will be made regarding a pick up? I know it's only an hour out of our lives but if it's not picked up, or is but not for another year (or even months), we'll pass or just wait. We do like period pieces, and from the premise this sounds good, so I hope it is picked up and sooner than later.

    Got eps 2 and 3 in last night before bed and man is this show fantastic. The casting is spot on and Rachel can deliver some ASP dialogue.

    I think that this show is funnier if you're Jewish (along the lines of Seinfeld, CYE) but you don't have to be Jewish to appreciate it-

    We have watched 2 episodes. We like it, but in smaller doses. Not something I would binge on. /notJewish

    That was my draw to the show, having grown up (even 10 years later) with parents/grandparents like that. I haven't watched anything besides the pilot yet, but planning to binge it soon once I am caught up on the rest of what I have saved.

    I tried to Google this but I still do not know what you are trying to say by "ASP dialogue".???

    I watched Eps. 1 & 2 so far and am liking this show, but it comes off more like a stage play. Lots of words, but none of it sounds natural. It sounds scripted and that everybody has memorized their lines. "Mad Men" at least looked and sounded natural, like they were saying what they were thinking -- not what had been written for them. <-- this is actually a minor gripe as I do like the cast and the idea, so I plan to catch the rest, but at my own pace (i.e., not quite binge-worthy for me).
