    Pamela Reed? I like her too, but it feels like she's rehashing her role from "Tanner '88."

    I'll probably have to agree. Each episode so far has been hit and miss, yet this one had a higher ratio of funny moments.

    Right now I'm more interested in the supporting cast (Tom, Ron, Ann) than Leslie herself. It's hard to tell if her character is hopelessly naive or a moronic caricature.

    She's both. That's what makes her the heart of this show and the cast (and the target of most of the humor)
