    I watched it from England. It turned out to be a great show, but it took a couple of episodes to get rolling for me. It's structured to have a cumulative effect (I won't say how or why), so it basically just keeps getting better as it goes.

    Agreed - my wife & I enjoyed it for the most part. Certainly different from anything else currently airing. And it's virtually impossible to recognize Megan Mullally!

    Robert Bianco from USA Today also liked it (3.5 out of 4 stars). I'll definitely record it and check it out.

    Definitely a slow burn, or at least the premiere was. But I enjoyed it. I'm in.

    I really liked the pilot. Sets up a very interesting premise. I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes. How many episodes will it be? And is there any way to tell us whether there's any chance of a second season without spoiling the end of this season?

    Totally agree that she's unrecognizable. If I hadn't recognized the voice, I would have had no idea which character she played.

    It's ten episodes, and I won't tell you whether there is a chance for a second season.

    I thought the first episode was pretty good. Definitely in it for the duration.

    Before we saw Megan Mullally, when we just heard her voice, I was sure it was Holly Hunter: I said "I don't remember seeing her name in the credits!"

    I thought that it was interesting although I had to chuckle at the fact that Rhonda's eventual destination is Slough.

    Is Slough where the UK Office took place?

    To paraphrase a Meat Loaf song "one outta two ain't bad" :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5hWWe-ts2s

    If either Sepinwall or Goodman gives a thumbs up then that's enough for me to at least check out a tv series.

    It gets an A- grade on AVClub, which is obviously excellent. They're generally tough graders. http://www.avclub.com/tvclub/you-me-and-apocalypse-both-epic-and-intimateand-lo-231298

    I saw some promos for this show and found it on a Tivo search a couple of weeks ago and set a 1P. I didn't realize it wasn't new, so I missed the first ep and had to watch it on the NBC site. Mercifully, there were no commercials.

    I thought it was interesting enough to try a few more episode. I did laugh out loud when I first saw Mullally. And I knew Fischer's gesture would come back to bite her.
