    I haven't seen it yet, but isn't this just Dharma and Greg?

    Got off to a horrid start but the quality picked up as it went along and I even got a few laughs near the end. Has some potential, though they need to improve on the overall execution as it was a little sloppy.

    No, not really; while I detect one or two similarities it is largely different.

    I agree I like the actors they just need to pick up quality but potentials there

    Shame because I like both lead actors because it was a terrible pilot...Apart from the obvious lack of chemistry, the jokes simply fall incredibly flat...Even the premise isn't compelling enough...It feels like a parody of a parody

    Bummer because I was looking forward to seeing Russell back regularly in something

    I agree with what you said KingOfIPirates, it started off slow but got a lot better in the second half. I'll still have to see if it gets going or not, but I have faith in Will Arnett and Mitchell Hurwitz because of Arrested Development.

    I liked it too, so will be tunning in. The show might have started a bit slow, but by the end of premiere episode it gathered speed.
