    i got to say it looks good but the first time i saw the promo the first thing i though was
    "the big bang theroy" without the physics
    anybody think the same?

    few days ago I think

    Watched it anyway, very good show you can see its not very original but they use what works in my opinion. If it builds from the pilot will be excellent.

    some of it was like the show 'Happy Endings', and actually one of the actors is also form that show. So is Happy Endings cancelled? I quite liked it

    He was only in the pilot, as he had a commitment to "Happy Endings" - as it got renewed, he has been replaced on "New Girl" which will seem a bit jarring since they didn't re-shoot the pilot.

    I definitely like Deschanel and the show seems to bank heavily on how much the audience likes her but I didn't find the pilot very funny overall. Still, most comedy pilots I can remember have been a bit on the weak side so I'll definitely give it a few more episodes before I make up my mind.

    Ah excellent, dont think I could go without my Elisha Cuthbert fix.

    Did someone say Justin Long is in it? Is he not the dorky type actor from films like Dodgeball. Did not recognise him at all if he was in it.

    Yes that's him - he's also known as the Mac guy from the Mac and PC Apple ads. He wasn't in he pilot - apparently he has a multi episode arc booked but I can't remember when he is scheduled to first appear, third episode I think.

    Two boobs Johnson... TIGER boobs Johnson.


    Pretty damn good pilot actually, very funny and I hope that they keep this going. Love Zooey Deschanel - I sort of see this being a bit like 30 Rock in a way, some is quite subtle.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,187 ✭✭✭ S.M.B.


    They could just throw Deschanel up on the screen for 25 minutes and I'd be happy.

    Looking forward to seeing how it progresses. Comedy pilots are usually very underwhelming.

    At least this whelmed me a little.

    Was a horrible promo.. but it has Zooey Deschanel...

    .. TORN!


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 21,634 Richard Dower


    I watched it last night, not as bad as expected....please note, i am NOT a fan of Zooey, i always found her ditzy, too "alternative" and a dreadful singer. But as to the pilot...there was some really good laughs but a few times the jokes fell flat.

    The kookie female roomie will get annoying imo, but i like that three lads....the douchebag jar was great!, some have likened it to TBBT.......eh?, just because you have three guys and a girl don't make it so, the format is nothing new, i just hope it dosen't focus too much on Dechaneel as for reasons above ^

    Will i keep watching?....what night is it on?, what is it's competition?....my schedule this year is INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If i can fit it in i might watch but it's not on a must see now list. 3/5


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 34,568 ✭✭✭✭ Biggins


    I also noticed similar traits to TBBT. The show was ok as such.
    Quirky and will be interesting to see if there is any story arcs or just something always news each week alone.
    Will watch this show for a while to give it a chance.


  • Registered Users Posts: 443 ✭✭ Xaniaj


    It was...ok. I'll give it a few more episodes but wasn't particularly won over.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,826 ✭✭✭ bpb101


    i like it , got to say , was it a comedy ? i wasn't spiting my sides laughing
    i like to see how it develops over the next few weeks

    Just saying... go back and watch ANY pilot of a "comedy" show on TV now or in the past. Even the most hilarious ones.

    I bet you'd only find a handful of pilots that were "side splitting" or even funny at all. Pilots prove the concept of the show, how it works, the type of comedy... the actors very often even. This was a particularly well made and well produced pilot, so it felt very much like the start of the season - but it's not, the show needs to find its feet.

    Watching it right now & enjoying it but I do like her. The guys seem to have a well written dynamic too. I think it's probably more aimed at women.

    The theme tune reminds me of Jenna singing "It's Pat" on 30 rock though


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,263 DeWitt


    Coach was my fave of the guys, but then I found out the actor has been recast due to another of his pilots getting picked up or something. #bummed

    I presume it's because Happy Endings got picked up for a second season.

    I quite liked the pilot - except for the cringey "Time Of Your Life" restaurant scene.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,263 DeWitt


    Ah yeah, that was it. Thanks!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,533 don ramo


    the pilot aired last night, i thought it was fairly good it looks like a show ill watch for as long as it airs, i was expecting this to be all zooey deschanel but it wasnt, the 3 lads are great and going by the pilot i see no reason they cant get better, when i saw a wayans in the credits it put me off a bit, but he turned out to be one of the funniets caracters,


    this and 2 broke girls look like good new shows,

    Overall is ok (probably because Zoey in it) but the restaurant scene definitely cringing!

    I actually lolled at 2 broke girls and it's got Kat Dennings om nom nom!

    The restaurant scene came off as knowingly cringey I thought. I doubt they'd be doing something similar on a regular basis.

    Lake Bell, Natasha Lyonne and Katie Cassidy have signed up for guest roles


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭ Also Starring LeVar Burton


    It's got potential - who have they cast to replace Wayans though? That could make it or break it for me... They need someone just as good to take over the role.
