I don't normally voice my negative criticisms in public, but this spectacle is just too painful to suffer in silence. I understand that NBC wants to ride the ratings coattails of Friends, but there's simply no justification, fiscal or otherwise, for a program this inept. I hope everyone involved in the production of this show enjoys the paycheck because an embarrassment like this can haunt a career forever.
I don't blame the actors. There's simply nothing to work with here.
