Advertisements This was funny! I was very pleasantly surprised. Only recorded because I typically try to watch all new sitcoms, and honestly, I didn't have high hopes, nor did I really care. Just didn't sound that appealing. And the reviews were mixed. And this is why we actually WATCH THEM. I thought this was funny, and for a pilot, surprisingly well-fleshed out. First off, the actors are great. Between Malin Ackerman, Bradley Whitford, Marcia Gay Harden and others, they have an amazingly deep cast. Both Whitford and Harden could do this in their sleep, yet they really seemed to bring their A game (ok, no more cliches). It was funny, had a catchy plot, no characters you immediately hate or think "miscast", but mainly, kept me laughing and entertained the entire time. If I had a single complaint, it would be the sheer number of characters we had to meet. But any sitcom pilot faces this, and I'm sure within a couple of eps, they'll be family. Again, as with many sitcom pilots, the first five minutes have some cringe and you want to delete it right then. But unlike most pilots, where it takes an episode or two before the fun overcomes the cringe, within minutes I was liking this. I have no idea what the buzz is, or if anyone watched. It may be doomed from the start. But I liked it. Try it!
