  • Not really different from the pilot actually...

    ... But the show sure has got speed. Never a dull moment on The Loop, although not every joke is a winner, the freshness and the amount of jokes keeps the bore far (enough) away from me. There is a lot of partying and booze in this episode, I must say that, and the themesong is not gonna be one of my favorite songs of all time, but the show's made by a bunch of enthousiast people, I can tell. It's just that the story's a bit thin, and it's a reprise of the pilot in many ways. That, and the fact that the funny words and explanations on the screen have suddenly disappeared are the only negativities. The lead actor is great (and I'm sure his hairstyle is gonna be a running gag) and his brother and best friend too, just hope the stories are gonna have a bit more meat on them next time.moreless

    This episode is hilarious, I love this show! It's my newest favourite comedy :). This show just keeps getting funner, and Meryl just keeps getting funny, Meryl is so funny!!! I can't get over how funny she is!! "...and you can't be 24 again either. Hey, you're good at math... Wanna see how many times 24 goes into 48?" I mean come on! That's hilarious! This episode was hilarious, and how Sams cholestrol level was 700.. Man, I could not stop laughing about it! I was laughing about that for like the whole episode. This show is hilarious, still enjoying it XD.moreless
  • Outrageously Unfunny,

    I owed this show at least one watching, just to give it a chance. My instincts were right, this show is absolute garbage, not funny at all. The characters are just dumb, Bookman or whatever the old guys name is, his delivery in this show is like the only thing that showed some hope, but I can't imagine him being funny in more than a couple of episodes. As for the rest of the cast, I dont think I need to comment too much, because anyone who has seen this should know that they're worthless. This show will be canned just like the rest foxs' garbage-coms before it.moreless
  • Funny and good follow-up to the pilot.

    I'm really enjoying this show. This episode started out at Sam's job, with a "Jack It" scene that just have to watch in order to find it humorous. Too great.

    The scene's with the sex-crazy woman were funny but not as funny as they were in the pilot. I like the secretary but she doesn't get much screen time at all.

    I'm worried that the show will get too formulaic in the future if it lasts longer than one season...with Sam planning on doing his work and then getting dragged out by his friends to get drunk and make out with girls, and Sam saving himself at the last second.

    • Russ: (Referring to other airlines that cater to a younger, hip clientelle) What do they have in common? They're all hip, they're young, and they've got us drunk in the back seat with our prom dress over our head. BUT I am NOT letting some quarterback take my V-Card without getting a little skin under my fingernails.
