    Wow!  The show ended 40 mins ago and I'm the first one here.  That doesn't bode well for the series.

    I didn't particularly enjoy it, but with David E. Kelley behind it I guess I'll give it another chance.

    Are there such places where the band and the photog come along as part of a complete package?  I suppose I can accept it as something that's available but not necessarily required in order to get the hall.

    It was ok. I'll give it another chance, but it being on Fridays will pretty much kill the show.

    I liked it, and definately think it has potential. I just thought there would be a little more comedy! Hopefully in the next episode cause that would really help. I think it's kind of a girly show, maybe that's why I like it...

    The show did get off to a slow start, but I think that's because all the characters and their back stories had to be addressed. But interestingly, not much WAS revealed about the characters. My concern is that the characters won't be engaging enough. Also there were quite a few "tender moments" that I think the show utterly needs to ditch in favor of a more comedic flair.

    Oh and being in a Friday timeslot will ensure no one watches it, at least not Fox's targeted demographic.

    I shut it off when they showed "the dog" and woman as they whined at the band. I am not sure if everyone caught it but, If they think a sick shot like that will gain an audience, they are sadly mistaken. Publicity yes, audience no. I hope the FCC or someone does something about these sick people. Either way, this show won't last.

    It's weird, but in the scene where they show the naked model, it's almost like it was meant for cable and she'd be nude but they dimmed it for network. Odd shot.

    I also really enjoyed it. It's not too much drama. It's a good feel-good show.

    I read all the reviews and thought "ok I'm going to hate this show" but I wanted to see it for Michael Landes as I'm a fan.

    I actually really enjoyed it, theres a good comedy and drama mix and none of the cast let it down - Teri Polo is a favourite though and she has the best storyline.

    Just hope Fox don't do the usual and cancel it before it gets a chance.

    Well I'll definitly be watching it as long as it's on, I don't really see this show lasting for more than a season, because of the way it's about weddings, i just dont know if it will draw a large enough crowd for fox to keep it going, but I hope it does because I love it!

    I thought it was cute, but I tuned in to watch Matthew Settle, who is listed as a guest on the pilot.  I didn't see him.  Did anyone else find him?  I noticed he's also listed in the next episode...does anyone know anything about this?  Thank you in advance for any info!

    I thought it was a promising pilot, hopefully it will get even more comedic and outrageous.

    Hmm thats odd, I for one definately did not see him so if he was in it then it must have been for a very short amount of time. Maybe he'll be more obvious in the next episode. relating to that I wish he'd been on Brothers and Sisters for longer.

     I watched this past episode and it was different than the one previously advertised...and, no, still no Matthew.  I'm getting more and more confused.  and, Heck, Yes, I hope he does more tv guest shots (whether on Brothers & Sisters, or SVU, or CSI)!  Which I think is actually what he's planning, now that's married.
