  • One of the shows that you keep watching hoping that it will get better in time.

    The plot of the pilot episode was interesting, characters had a catchy dialogues, and from time to time it was really funny.
    But the real problem was that you could see that the actors are 'trying' to be funny. The scenes were textbook directed and not in a good way (you could actually imagine someone saying 'Action' at the beginning of the scenes). The whole show needs that 'final touch' because for now it look like good amateur work, not professional. I only hope that the actors will get more relaxed with the characters after few episodes, and that the plot will be good enough during the season.
