I very much enjoyed this show. I do hope that it stays at quick and light as it is now. Looking forward to new episodes.
Matthew Perry still have it
Matthew Perry made me laugh in Friends, and made me laugh here again. I just can't wait for the next episode. It has almost everything I look for in a comedy. Well done, Mattew. Well done.
I missed Matthew Perry since Friends was finished in 2004. His new character is a lot like Chandler Bing (just like Courteney Cox' character in Cougar Town is a lot like Monica Geller) and I really appreciate that.
The other guy (Alonzo) is really funny too with his "everything is so wonderful" attitude. All the characters are interesting and fun to watch.
I liked the Pilot and hope, there will be a season pass soon. I'm really looking forward to the series.
