  • Disappointing

    This episode reminded me too much of the previous show. The pressure to put together the show, the worry about the ratings and the concern over the reaction of the Christian right. While the show attempts to deal with serious issues while still maintaining comedic flavor, it reduces the issues to brief sound bites which proved unsatisfying. There were so many overlapping plots that none of them could be developed sufficiently. I was really interested in seeing their show and seeing the brief montage bits of the show left me unsatisfied. I was happy that the show was successful, but I saw so little of the show that I didn't understand why it had been so well received. While I am still enjoying the show, the next episode will be important. If it seems like the same thing over again (similiar this episode and the last episode), I will begin to lose interest in the show.
