    To me, I cannot tell if this is good or bad, but let's put it this way, but this show seems kinda fair.

    Yeah, the acting has a lot to be desired and that roomate of hers has to go (the one with the cat). Im hoping it just needs to find its feet and take-off, like most new shows.

    The laugh track cutting in and out so abruptly is distracting. Learn how to use it or don't use it at all.


    Dee Dee (Lauren Lapkus) could be DJ Qualls' sister.


    The sets look really cheap. The name of the series doesn't make sense.


    It was okay, not great. I expected more.

    Your right about the title. Absolutely no sense!

    What kind of name is Sloane?? Just my opinion, Sloane is an ugly name......


    Anyway, yesterdays episode was just OK......I'm still going to give it another couple weeks and see what happens.

    The laugh was terribly annoying.
    But I must say the show is pretty good. I think I'm starting to like it.

    Problem #1 - Laura Prepon. She is not agood enough actress to pull this off.


    Problem #2. There isn't a single likable character in the show. Chelsea comes off like a self-centered thoughtless sensation junkie, her sister is a shrew with no redeeming features. The nerdy roommate is the only one you could possibly care about.



    Good Point - some of the lines are truly funny, but not the way Laura Prepon delivers them.

    I think it's getting kind of good. It's one of those nice, watchable, but nothing special, sit-coms that I enjoy when there's nothing else on. And there's nothing wrong with a TV-show being that. We need those shows to survive all the "reality" crap. And I'm impressed by the way they are handling Christians after episode 3, as I was afraid they were just going to stereotypically bash them like all other sit-coms seems to be doing. That Celibacy Jam was very much like the events my Christian friends go to (and I go to because they're fun).

    I like Laura Prepon as an actress but the Character she is portraying is just awful. Overall the show is way below average.

    OK, it's been 8 episodes, and I must say it's getting better. Episodes 7 and 8 were actually good!

    I tivoed these eps to watch when I got around to them, and I finally did last night, so I had a little marathon. The only episodes that I thought were fairly funny were the eps where Chelsea and Nikki were assumed to be lesbians on the boat by the 2 gay males and the baseball player one. Otherwise, its very eh.



    Laura Prepon is okay but not great. I wasnt much of a "70s Show" fan so IDK if she isnt always like this or not but...yeah.



    I love Chelsea Handler but as an actress she leaves a lot to be desired. Its like she cant read off a long sentence without it sounding stilted



    Dee Dee is very annoying and I wouldnt care if she were off the show. Shelley is okay though.



    Rick(?) the bartender is okay but I have to keep reminding myself that he was actually into Nicki because every time I see him he is always staring at Laura or something. I think they have more chemistry



    The only thing really saving me on this show is Nicki. I love Natasha Leggero and she is a breath of fresh air on this show.



    Overall, I wouldnt mind if it were cancelled tomorrow, its just somethin to watch.

    That is about where I am at. I watch it because of Prepon but it is average at best.

    I have seen them all; the last episode showed some promise viz. to the first 3; I'll stick with the roll out of all the shows 'til the season end.
