I mean, at least its still not offensive in the nature of the humour, like most of today's comedies, and when those killer one liners hit they do so with extreme effect.
It's just that I find myself sitting there waiting for it to happen; anticipating it even. And I was watching Shatner tonight a bit more closely, and he seemed to be marking time until the next biggie too. I think Shatner is the key. If he can make this character natural; make it flow like Denny Crane did then this thing can succeed. Trouble is, he as Denny was not alone. At any given time he had one or more expert comedians or comedic actors with him and they were more than competent foils for one another. Here, at least at the get-go, he stands essentially alone.
I haven't given up, but neither can I commit to this series on my most crowded must-see night of TV. Lucky S#*t!...it airs here on Sunday as well and if I can squeeze it in there I just may do that.
