  • Great start to a great show.

    Even during the staff's first morning meeting, you could tell this show was headed on its way to greatness. The humor was always funny and smart, if not offbeat. The characters were all well-established in this episode as the city went through the garbage strike, although they all slightly evolved through the seasons. Even though the show was meant to be centered around Mike, many of the characters stole their respective scenes. Press Secretary Paul Lassiter was especially good at this--he drew a laugh every time he walked into the bullpen in this episode. This was a great first episode, and it kept me laughing the whole time.moreless
