I think this could be a fun successful comedy for NBC.:) I've only seen the pilot, but I like it. First, who doesn't love cute animals? And that Monkey! Jesus...what a star he/she turned out to be. Lol...a monkey in human clothes - it can't get better than that. "Rizzo - run some interference." lol:)....plus, I like Justin Kirk - he was my favorite character on Weeds. I think he's hysterical. I'll be watching this show this Fall...if they got some good writers that teach me something along the way...I think it could be a syndicated hit.
The Pilot episode of Animal Practice was a perfect beginning to what could be a great new series. I love the cast and they all play interesting parts which at first glance seem a little stereotypical. The underlying story was well told and established what we needed to know about the characters and initial plot lines. There was humor, a little drama, and lots of animals. I look forward to watching more episodes and I hope that the series finds it's success. It's nice to have a show like this which is about animals as much as their owners and the hospital staff that takes care of them!!!!!!!!!
That's pretty much the best way to sum this show up. Justin Kirk, scene-stealer from Weeds, plays a more bitter role here and while he was kind of good at it, no one can play that role like Hugh Laurie, so it just came off as phony. I am a fan of Joanna Garcia and she was decent here, but most of the cast is annoying. His assistant, or whatever it was, is brutal, Bobby Lee hasn't said a funny thing since Mad TV, and while Tyler Labine's character got a few chuckles out of me, I can't see much longevity there.
It could work, but I just don't know how much originality there can be week to week with this concept. Animals doing crazy stuff, not much room for uniqueness there.
This is good,for a sitcom. Crystal is a real joy. Justin Kirk is funny as hell. And a great lead. Joanna Garcia-Swisher feel little stiff but because she is so hot, it's ok. I really hope she get better in time. Tyler Labine seem little off. Betsy Sodaro is just annoying. But Bobby Lee is the worst one.
Story line is good. I love the "I won't pay,just kill the dog" joke. Some jokes feel little force.
