good weird idea for a sitcom ,, catchy in few scenes but still doesn't have the element of keep tuned .. :P
12 August 2015 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

So i'll give them that the idea is new and original and the comedy pops in some scenes but I literally yawned right in the middle of the pilot and in the second episode i started writing this review !!! i don't know exactly what it is but i think the element of "staying tuned in" is missing because i knew that i won't be laughing hilariously in most of the scenario so fast-forward not it doesn't really matter.

So the sitcom looked okay , Richard Keith and Erin Cardillo are young writers and seem talented but i bet CW made something on the script (as they usually do) to make it appear less catchy if i might say.

The casting is fine .. Nathaniel Buzolic acting naive and rational and the stressed closed in boss Josh Zuckerman and i liked the funny surprise appearances by Jonathan Silverman .. and yeah .. Krista Allen performance is awful .

Overall , i do have a mixed feeling about this show ... the idea is new but still not convinced that it could be a continuing hit for CW .. i'll probably watch the next couple of episodes but if the rhythm stays as it is now i don'e think i'll bear keep on watching it.
