Anyone else watching this?

It's got Wil Arnett (Arrested Development), Keri Russel (Felicity) and I was surpised to see Peter Serafinowicz (Spaced).

So far I think it's pretty funny.

I thought the first episode was kinda meh. However, the second ep was pretty funny. I'm still behind, but I'm gonna say it's probably one of those shows that will grow on me like Arrested Development. In fact, I'm gonna catch up now and come back to this thread.

It's been ok so far. I feel like it has a lot of potential. The overall premise and plots have been silly, but there are small things that have been truly hilarious, like the automatic piano or "Tgif."

I've been loving it! My favourite scenes tend to be the ones between Fa'ad and Steve.

I was really disappointed with this show! I think I had unfairly high expectations bc I love them both soo much. I missed this week's ep though, so maybe it is improving.

I just deleted it from my TiVo. I wanted to like it, but it's just not capturing my attention.

Definitely, AD took some time to grow on me and there were always meh episodes but overall it was good.

Yes, I love how he had to go back and turn it off. And I like how despite being so against everything new and shiny, Emmy sometimes finds herself getting caught up in it all like with the electric car.

Every time I watch this show I just think "can the whole 'whistling as theme music' meme stop?" It's really annoying.

I also wanted to like this (Peter Serafinowicz, for fork's sake), but it just... sucks.

This last episode was kind of meh, but I actually really liked some of the earlier episodes (and I was totally prepared to hate it after some of the things I had heard about it).

I've watched 2 episodes. I could do without Keri Russel (who I like! I just don't like her character) and a different child actress. I think there are more funnier bits in episodes than the critics give credit.
