It's getting to be that time of year, friends. Grocery stores are putting summer ales on sale to clear some shelf space for spicier fall flavors, and pretty soon Starbucks will be selling Pumpkin Spice Lattes like they're going out of style. Changing leaves and the end of Daylight Savings Time are just around the corner, and that means the broadcast networks are beginning to ramp up the promotional campaigns for their new fall shows. In NBC's continued drive to be first in everything, the network has released the pilot for its new comedy A to Z six weeks before the show's official premiere on Thursday, October 2.
A descendent of the How I Met Your Mother school of television, A to Z is a romantic comedy that chronicles a relationship from beginning to end, à la 500 Days of Summer. Mad Men's Ben Feldman (with both of his nipples) stars as Andrew, a true believer in destiny and romance, and HIMYM's Cristin Milioti plays the object of his affection, Zelda, a lawyer with a different outlook on life and relationships.
Watch the pilot below and then hit the comments to share your first impressions!
What do you think? Do you find A to Z charming, or too saccharine for your taste?
