After 11 episodes, my infatuation with Kristen Bell is unabated.

Show got a little better as the season wore on, but the 3 people who work for Marty are still beyond annoying to me. It's not a show I would specifically subscribe to SHO for, but if it's on at the same time of year as a must-see show for me, then I would continue to watch.

So was that underwear scene the most we saw of her on this show?

Agree with this except I think Jean-Ralphio is a good character. But agree that the show did get better as it wore on and since it's sandwiched between Shamless and Californication, I'll keep watching.

I think Marty got what he deserved with his kid.

I think so. But I'm not particularly moved to see her naked, which would probably wear off about 30 seconds or less after I saw it. She's hot to me fully clothed. Which is strange, because I never particularly thought of her as hot all during Veronica Mars. For me, the infatuation started with Forgetting Sarah Marshall. http://i.imgur.com/kNGs0.jpg

I think Marty got what he deserved with his kid.

But did the kid get what he deserved? The kid has gone from a situation with Marty where he pretty much had his reasonably stably grandfather looking after him to his psycho mother. Sure, they can decide to writer her as a decent mother despite everything else, but based on what we've seen so far, I wouldn't bet on it.

People still watch TV live when a show broadcasts? :) This show is just another in a mix of stuff on the Tivos. Better than anything on network television. I'll leave it in the mix.

I fully expect next season to open with Marty waking up in bed with Jeannie and then them promptly discussing how it will never happen again. Then the usual tension for the whole season. Predictable.

I hope you don't fast forward through the commercials.

One of the better episodes so far, but that's really not saying much.

I'm not really liking the supporting staff in this. Nothing really interesting with them. Doug is a moron all the time... I get he's not good with people, but he constantly tries and never thinks before he speaks. Jean Ralpheo is extremely one dimensional. And Kristen Bell is just there. Marty's the only character that has some dimension to him.

I find the constant looking at the camera/audience annoying. Sure, do it once in a while... but it's done about 20 times an episode.

The whole takeover/merger storyline should've been left for Season 2 or later. It was introduced halfway through the first season before we really get to know more about the characters and their work. It doesn't feel as urgent or major to me as I new to this universe.

Just caught up on this show. I liked it despite the faults. Funny though what you say about Kristen Bell, it's the exact opposite for me. I had a big thing for her on Veronica Mars. Starting with Forgetting Sarah Marshall it started to wain. I think maybe because Mila Kunis was so much hotter than her in that movie. Now on this show she just looks harsh and kind of plain.

I do agree that the merger took up too much of this season, needed more stand alone episodes showing the group doing their thing
