I seriously called several of my friends last night to tell them they *have* to watch this show next week. I thought it was hysterical. It was surprisingly witty, risque and totally heartwarming all at the same time. And Jason Lee? Rocks.

I heard a bit on NPR of all places that said the second episode is even funnier than the first. I can't wait!

I hope the second episode is funnier than the first, because I didn't think it was that great.

Don't throw things at me!

I mean, I thought it was all right, but I just didn't laugh that much. The fat guy bugged me, and as a whole, it owed a lot to "Raising Arizona." A hell of a lot...

Rain, I would never throw anything at you, unless we were playing "beer can tag." I think you are dead-on, actually, in your connection to Raising Arizona. I wonder if that's going to be something constant throughout the run of the show, or if it was just laid on so heavily for necessary exposition. I guess we'll see next week.

I totally want to play beer can tag. Max, you're it!

Rain, damn, I thought Ethan Suplee was hilarious. I may just be biased by his tour de force performance in Mallrats as Willam, the guy who couldn't see the sailboat. He's lost a lotta weight!

Jaime Presley was really funny.

You have to love a show where a character says "i even took out my good boob". I can't wait until next week.

I thought it was great and I'll definitely be back for more.

I thought it was really well done and smart and interesting and the characters are enjoyable but...I totally didn't laugh. Not even once.

I smiled a couple times and was amused but no true guffaws, chuckles or chortles.

I'll keep watching but I like my comedies to actually make me laugh so, in that regard, it was lacking.

Let's focus more on how hot Jason Lee is. Although, I keep hearing Azrael when ever he is talking. Love teh Dogma.

I really enjoyed the first episode. It seems like something that wouldn't be on mainstream TV and it's refreshing! I'm a little worried that it won't last the season, but I'm hoping it will!

Well, we have one thing going for us...it's not on Fox. Because if it were, it'd probably be cancelled already.

How much do I love the trend of 30-minute sitcoms that are filmed on location instead of your typical stage set? I love it a lot.

I finally watched this just now and as I type this I'm downloading Rob Base and DJ EZ Quick right now.
I agree this owed a heavy debt to "Raising Arizona" and partially fulfills my dreams for a sequel.
