I almost woke my daughter up because I was laughing so hard as Rick Hoffman, "Patrick", was running down the sidewalk making that bleeting (sp?) sound. Damn, that was funny.

I liked Charlotte better w/ the blonde do that she had on NYPD Blue, but she is still smoking hot.

Malick hitting the baby's head on the door-frame wasn't right at all.

I liked all the stuff with Wendie Malick and the baby.

That was exactly how I felt when I had my baby. As much as I hated being in the hospital, I was terrified to go home and be someplace where I couldn't call for help at a moment's notice.

I thought this show was extremely underrated last season and this premiere was even better... hopefully it finds an audience, hilarious show.

I'm a little disappointed. I remember the show being a lot better than this. It was still OK, but the way they tried to shoehorn Annie into the plot didn't work. Last season, it was all about him trying to evolve from "5-girls-a-week bachelor dude" into "stable mature relationship guy". Now he's "pining over ex-fiance guy". I'm not as interested, and I want to see more of his friends.

I am now confused, Jake was suppose to have gone to school with Patrick now? Last season he was the crazy performance artist ex-boyfriend of his friend's sister he took out on a date.

For some reason I thought this show was cancelled. It seemed like it disappeared out of nowhere

To me it seemed as if the whole Annie plot was nothing more than a way for them to find an excuse to do a complete makeover on the character -- changing his wardrobe, hotel room decorations, even hairstyle, away from what we saw last season, to a more "hip and trendy" style. That bothered me a bit. It is as if they are trying to reboot the show with a new style and premise, even though the premise and style of last season is what I liked about the show.

Well last season also had Jake finally going steady with Julie Bowen's character when all of a sudden Annie shows up at the door and the season ended on that cliffhanger. And now all of that has gone out the window.

This show isn't going to see a third season.

Did they change the whole set of his hotel room too?
