  • Any new comedy that can me make laugh out loud has the potential of becoming a winner in my book. And boy... it did happen on more than one occasion.

    Ever since Roseanne started, I've had the biggest crush on Sara Gilbert as Darlene, which is of course why I cheered when she landed a role as Paula in "24". Too bad, she only lasted a few episodes because (SPOILER) her character didn't survive a bomb explosion.

    And now she has her own sitcom and I think this type of show is the best for her. There are few people that can deliver sarcasm with such a straight face like Sara. And really, the scene in which she tries to convice her sister to quit for the first time was brilliant!

    "You're an inspiration for girls everywhere that starve themselves", that had me literally choking on my noodles (because I was eating them, geddit?) Now, if that makes me an easy target for jokes, then I'm easy, don't care!

    Good stuff, and definitely want to see more for now.moreless
  • Lame.

    If the pilot episode for 'Twins' is an idea of what's to come, then the show has no future. This episode was completely devoid of wit or intelligent writing. In fact, the only witty remark in the entire thing is when Mitchee (Sara Gilbert) says "The woman thinks birds are smarter then people because they can understand chirping." This is the last 'Twins' episode for me.
  • The pilot was hilarious! I loved it so much. And I laughed so much it made my head hurt. :)

    The pilot was great. It was written by David Kohan and Max Mutchnick and I gotta say; it was a great pilot episode and a great start for the series. I love Twins so much already, I hope it lasts forever!
