Carpoolers - "Laird of the Rings" - 10/09/07

Spoiler:
Laird borrows Gracen's wedding ring because he thinks it will make him more desirable to a woman. Marmaduke thinks that Laird may be his real father and Aubrey is seen sneaking into a motel by Dougie, who thinks the worst of it.


Is there anybody else besides me that didn't drop this after the premiere?

After watching the pilot a couple of more times - I actually can't wait until tonight.

I was very upset with the pilot, and may give it another shot, but I probably won't get around to watching it for several days.

Really, how did it upset you?

I thought both episodes have been ok, predictable but ok.

Well, I figured I'd give it a second chance.

After watching someone bounce off cars a few times, I decided to shift gears and drive off ...... permanently.

Everyone out of the pool!

Anyione think Jerry O'Connell looks like the Riddler? I know he is supposed to be the "hot" guy of the sitcom, but yeah, not so much....
And I find the son, "Marmaduke", a really worthless character. Thought I would give this a try one more week, and it was one more week too many.

I actually thought him getting hit by the 2 cars was hilarious. I liked the 2nd episode better than the first.

Though, with it losing almsot 2 million viewers, I wonder how long this and Cavemen will last?

Because I'm a huge Kids in the Hall fan, and Bruce McCulloch is probably my favorite member of the troupe. To see him doing such a mediocre show sucks.

Not as good as the pilot, but I like this show. It isn't the greatest of all time but decent enough to keep watching. Hope it doesn't get pulled too soon.

The only part of this episode I liked was the beginning and the end in the car singing "Come On, Eileen". Probably because it's one of my favorite 80's songs, but calling on-star to ask the lyrics cracked me up.

Rest of the show was pretty mediocre.

I have to admit that people confusing the lyrics of well-known songs (to the point of almost making them up to the melody of the song) usually makes me laugh.

I liked it the two episodes that I watched but for some reason it just doesn't seem like a show that could last more than a short season.

No love for last nights show? I thought it was another very good episode with a lot of laughs and THANK GOD they do not have a laugh track to ruin everything.

I'm hoping this makes it the full season.

I didn't like last night's episode at all, I just didn't find any humor in it at all. I might be done with the show.
