I have to say this show is worth checking out, it comes on fox Tuesdays at 9:30 pm. Both Will Arnett and David Cross are reunited with Mitchell Hurwitz. This show is hilarious, it premiered on September 21, so it is not too late to get into the game. Kerri Russel from the show Felicity also stars in the show. Good stuff. Well written and hilarious. Will Arnett and David Cross are easily at their funniest.

Here is an interview with Mitch about his new show.

I've watched the first 2 episodes, so far it's ok, some good gags.
Arnett and Cross together again is delightful, and Peter Serafinowicz is great too.

I have high hopes for this show, I think once it grows on you, it will get better. I do not want to step on anyones toes but this show has potential. I think it could be as good as Hurwitz's other shows. O well here is hoping.

some OK jokes, Arnett and cross together was the definite highlight, but I'm still not completely sold

It's okay so far. Nothing compared to AD. Hopefully it improves, and hopefully it doesn't get cancelled.

That is the problem, we can not compare it to AD. If we do, the show will fail, its a new show, its not AD. I am just saying lets keep an open mind. Mitchell Hurwitz is a genius. All of his shows are funny canceled or not.

Of course I can compare it to AD. I can compare it to anything I want, and AD is the most reasonable thing to compare it to, since it's the creator and two of the stars from it.

Will Arnett was hilarious last episode, the rest was just OK, I think the show could do without the little girl narrating

That is not my favorite part, but I am ok with it. Not sure what is up with the little girl. David Cross is always funny as well.


Edit: New episode Tuesday at 9:30 on Fox.

Last episode was a letdown from the previous 2, altough Fa'ad's Alan Alda impression was perfect

This episode felt the most absurd and complicated, and I liked it for that. The comedy of errors felt the most like AD it's been. Hope it can keep it up.

Are you following Will Arnett on twitter? He's angry about the ratings

It is a great show, and I am afraid Fox will cancel it. I think it is hilarious, one of the better comedy shows in a while.  I would not blame the guy for being angry, this is his first leading role show, and the ratings are not that great.  I am a big fan of the show and plan to keep watching.

It's a hilarious show, but for some reason it just feels like it'll only last a season, you know?

Because. it's. on. Fox. !.
Why would you even attempt to make a non-animated sitcom on Fox? Seriously. Even the sitcom that Seth MacFarlane produced a few years ago didn't last. Seth MacFarlane!

at least they gave it some decent promo time during the MLB game, that's pretty much it's only hope at this time

I didn't even know the show existed until I read this thread. I watched the pilot on Hulu and thought it was a'ight. Had potential, but I wasn't exactly lol'ing.

Granted, I don't watch a whole lot of fox other than football...but I would have to say that fox is doing a lousy job promoting this show.

I would like the show better if they dumped felicity and her annoying daughter.

She is pretty hot though, I like watching her. Make happy pantalones somewhat(wrap your head around that). smile
I do not mind her waltzing around, she does not ruin anything for me.

I agree with Bigboysdontcry, that daughter is pretty hot.

...actually, I agree completely with DaveMason too. I don't think I could have said that better myself. It's almost like he was channeling me, somehow.

Just forget it! I was going to share my Pop Secret with you, but forget it!

...anyway, after watching the pilot on Hulu, I never did keep up with this show. I feel bad for Mitch and co, but whatcha gonna do. It wasn't bad, but I just wasn't into it.

And unfortunately casting the talented Will Arnett in them. IIIIf the show's gonna suck anyway, bring in sucky actors...don't let it taint the resume of a talented one...(btw yeah that sit down shut up was completely unbelievable, unrelateable, and just plain stupid...but i enjoyed seeing a cartoon version of GOB who was a gym teacher.
