Much like "happy Endings" this oneis modern and freinds. Forget the reruns, this up to date and real.
Couldn't last past 30 seconds
I know some will argue that I need to watch the whole thing to write a review but a pilot show should draw you in right away and all this one did was repel me.
The lead actor is absolutely one of the worst actors I have ever seen.
This will be pulled from air very soon!
I found it quite funny so far! It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but what show really is? I thought the characters were very funny and I'd like to see where this goes. I wish it was as funny as Love Bites, but it does have potential.
