    Robin, this show looks great. No teen girl romance, but it looks like it's right up my alley.

    My son and I watched it last night. We weren't too impressed but I'll give it another try. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and say maybe the first show was just setting up the characters and giving some background? :dontknow: Or maybe I'm just reading too much into it.

    I watched it - kinda sucked.
    I really wanted to like it - great cast (love monk guy and jerry o'connel) and the show was shot really well. Visually it looks really good. But the writing was pretty bad. It was like a bad sitcom that looked like a movie.

    PLEASE FIX IT !!! I'm willing to give it another shot

    The Michael J Fox Show is very well reviewed, as is Don Jon, and the Metallica movie---3 out of 4---not bad :dontknow:

    Stern had nothing to do with those guys. SiriusXM forced people to talk about it.

    Name the last sitcom that Jerry O'Connell was in that lasted more than one year. Most of them don't even last a full season and I don't know how this guy keeps getting work.

    I actually thought "Carpoolers" with the unknown but hilarious Fred Goss (sons and daughters) was pretty funny at times. Certainly better than most sitcoms out there. Here Jerry thinks a wild Coyote is a lost dog.

    And one from sons and daughters for those with wives and kids.

    Jerry lucked out with being in that Ali Larter Edris Elba movie that came out number 1 at the box office a few years ago, I remember Howard and Robin praising him for it and he was barely in the movie

    They really didn't use Tony S. properly...he is a great actor and he just is a creepy ode man going after 24 yr odes in this.
