  • A Promising Start

    I wasn't sure what to expect from the new batch of NBC comedies this year and this was easily my favorite. I think the Pilot shows a lot of potential and hopefully it will be successful. It'd not Seinfeld and Frasier - yet - but those started somewhere too. I hope NBC gives it a fair chance and does not cancel it right out of the gate. I especially liked Ella Rae Peck as Molly. Great casting there!moreless

    NBC once had Seinfeld, they recently had 30 Rock, Frasier and Just Shoot Me were also on the channel, as was The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.



    Okay, I am not putting this show in the same breath as any of those yet, but there was a lot of potential in this episode. Mike O'Malley definitely delivered in his role, and the unoriginal premise was overshadowed by a well-written episode with a lot of good, funny lines in it.



    This is the highlight of NBC's Thursday night lineup, and if the rest of the season is as good as the pilot there is hope here. Maybe this show will end up achieving the same status as the others I mentioned.moreless
